Autolux – “Soft Scene” (Prod. Boots)
The enigmatic L.A. studio-rock trio Autolux haven’t released an album since 2010’s Transit Transit, but they’ve just announced that they’ll drop their as-yet-untitled third LP this spring. This time around, they worked with a fellow mysterious, texture-happy studio rat: Beyoncé/Run The Jewels collaborator Boots, who produced the entire album. Autolux have just shared “Soft Scene,” that album’s first single. It’s a piece of panting, throbbing jitter-pop that reminds me of nothing so much as mid-’90s trip-hop. Check it out below.
The new album is coming sometime next spring on Danger Mouse’s new imprint 30th Century Records.
