Listen: The Notwist’s exciting new song “Kong”

on January 21, 2014, 5:37pm

German electro-pop outfit The Notwist will soon return with their first album in six years, Close To The Glass, thanks to a new deal with Sub Pop Records. Already we’ve previewed the title track, a glitchy, pulsating number that sounded like something Thom Yorke would come up with. “Kong”, however, is much more peppy and straightforward, seeming more like a Kevin Drew tune than one from the Radiohead frontman. Marked with fuzzy synths, a driving bassline, and abounding vocal hooks, “Kong” even has a trippy outro, adding an extra layer of interesting. It all builds up to the February 25th release of Close To The Glass. Listen below.
