DOWNLOAD: Explosions in the Sky’s First Song


Austin’s Explosions in the Sky will return April 26 with Take Care, Take Care, Take Care, their first album in four years, and now the first song from the record has emerged. Hear and download “Trembling Hands” below.

The track, which, at 3 minutes and 31 seconds, is a short one for the notoriously expansive Explosions, leads with a trance-inducing, looped sample of what sounds like a shout, then builds atop staccato drum beats and meandering, reverb-drenched guitar work before building to an aggressive crescendo.

The band kicks off a U.S. tour April 1 in Oxford, Mississippi, which includes a headlining gig at New York’s Radio City Music Hall. Click here for all dates.
