Grizzly Bear are back with a jazzy new tune from their upcoming fourth studio album. ”Sleeping Ute” is a single reminiscent of Jeff Buckley, with skilled acoustic picking weaving through powerful strums as a distorted electric guitar echoes in the distance. The song also uses some 60s rock style as Droste breaks free of the band to sing, “And I can’t help myself…anymore” before bursting back in to the sound crashing drums. But far from being stuck in the past, this song comes off as refreshing and constantly interesting (not to mention very modern sounding instruments like the synthesizers). It’s a slightly new direction for Grizzly Bear and it has me very excited for this new album. Listen below and check out the tour dates after the break.
