The maximalist R&B of Autre Ne Veut returns today with another dense gem from his forthcoming album Anxiety. “Play By Play” kicks off the whole album with a hyperactive digital pop song. It’s figidty R&B, never getting to comofortable with itself until the end, when Arthur Ashin finds his wheelhouse in the eyes-closed, chest-beating hook. Not many people can make something this personal also sound like such a bizarre, but totally plausible club jam. Check out the track below.
Anxiety drops February 26th via Daniel Lopatin’s imprint Software records and Autre Ne Vuet hits the road directly thereafter with Majical Cloudz, ending at up at South by Southwest. Those dates are listed below.
