This song entitled 3WW by Alt-J had an extremely relaxed intro. It begins with a kind of folky guitar at first but is still whimsical. The production was excellent and it was very clean. I felt it had a good balance of percussion and synths with a hint of the mellow guitar. If i was a Viking that had access to modern tech this would be the music Iโ€™d make. There were a few moments with some nice crescendos that were unexpected, added with some off key piano that still works well with the rest of the composition. There is a female vocalist accompanied by some sweet harmonies. These were a nice touch to keep the song lighthearted. 3WW ended with a nice crisp finish to keep you wanting more ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿพ. 3WW would be perfect if I was wanting to hang out on a fall night in the mountains, due to its very very very mellow overtones. This song is not something that I would expect from the way it started all the way until the end. It transgresses nicely, which in this case was a good thing for me personally. The instrumental intro helps build and build and build until the actual crescendo and the velvety smooth vocals come in, which ultimately help keep the mood extremely relaxed. **
I thought 3WW was a really interesting song. It started out very peacefully and it just kinda felt like I was maybe dreaming or laying in a field. The melody had a very sugary quality to it. As the song went on, it seemed to develop into a slightly more serious and tense atmosphere. It was almost like the song wanted to be its own antagonist. It at point it sounded like something that could have been at least a little inspired by Queen. The middle interlude section was my favorite part. The melody in this section was haunting and it seemed like the track was going to build up and explode into an epic symphony of sounds. But that's not what happened at all. It actually made its way back to the original theme that was established at the beginning. It was almost like Alt j was saying that the most epic part of the whole song is actually the part you were most likely to take for granted. I thought this was really cool. That being said, this wasn't my favorite Alt j song. However as a stand alone song I thought this came across as a new sense of artistic maturity that was not fully developed in the bands previous efforts. So I think for them this is showing a solid progression of growth that they should absolutely continue to build on.
With an intro that sounds like a dub version of an Ali Farka Toure blues, this is Alt-J at their most mellow. While initially the song sounds as though it will be a really beautiful and atmospheric instrumental, it quickly turns into their most epic and arguably best song in their catalogue. The three singers work fluidly and each verse seems to have it's own structure, giving the tune a (very) mini rock opera feel about a boy leaving home experiencing life for the first time. It captures the fleeting nature of travel very well "Love is just a button we pressed, last night by the campfire", but the melodies here will stay in your mind for good.
