Battles stream new track “The Yabba”

Battles share their new single for "The Yabba" from their forthcoming full-length release 'LA DI DA DI'.

Following a live session of four album tracks played on loop for 24 hours, this is the first chance for fans to hear the studio version of La Di Da Di music. “The Yabba” is now available widely on streaming services.

As the name might imply, La Di Da Di is a mushrooming monolith of repetition. Here is an organic techno thrum of nearly infinite loops that refuse to remain consistent. The rhythmic genus of Battles is here as ever; full frontal, heightened and unforgiving – the gauntlet through which melody and harmony must pass, assailed at every turn.
