If this were a school yearbook, alt-J would be crowned “Class Over-Achievers.” I’m sure you’ve exhausted your Spotify this week by streaming their amazing new album This Is All Yours over and over again (we’re guilty for sure), and now they’ve decided to cover Disclosure and Sam Smith’s “Latch,” giving us yet another track to obsess over. The Brit band knows exactly how to strip down this electronic beat by adding subtle piano tones and those deep, haunting vocals we all love. Check out their BBC studio session below. A+ work, guys.
