alt-J hasn’t released music since 2012 but we can forget all about the lapse with their newest release yesterday titled “Hunger Of The Pine.” In an interview with NPR the band spoke of the departure of their bassist Gwil Sainsbury, explaining that “having to write songs as a trio rather than a foursome was a daunting prospect for us at first, but coming up with this song reassured us that — for want of a better phrase — we were going to be OK.” I think this first track is enough evidence backing that for now.
