Battles Share Intricate, Lengthy New Track, ‘The Yabba’

Battles are releasing their follow-up to 2011’s Gloss Drop next month, and they’ve just shared a new single from the upcoming instrumental LP, La Di Da Di. “The Yabba” is a nearly 7-minute-long odyssey of electronic tweaks and blips with an ever-changing current of evolving, intricate synths. Like most of the math-rock outfit’s music, “The Yabba” manages to venture off on some sonically unexpected paths while still seeming cohesively trance-like. Stream it via Rolling Stoneand look for La Di Da Di on September 18 via Warp.
