When Hot Chip singer Alexis Taylor announced his solo album Await Barbarians, we learned it would more of a low-key chill sesh than one of Hot Chip’s trademark quirky synthpop excursions. Lead single “Elvis Has Left The Building” certainly swung that way. Now Taylor has unveiled a second song from the project, “Without A Crutch (2).” It’s a gentle lullaby of a ballad carried along by crisp drums and warm organic sounds like banjo and piano, topped off by Taylor’s angelic tenor as per usual. The video is not much to speak of, but it allows you to hear the song, so watch it below.
Await Barbarians is out 6/9 on Domino.
