Rising indie rock stars Unknown Mortal Orchestra are returning this year with their newest album, Multi-Love, and the new album looks to find the band expanding their sound into new and interesting territories. The band’s latest single, “Can’t Keep Checking My Phone,” finds the band playing with dance rhythms, lounge-singer arrangements, and a clearer sound than ever before. The song eschews rock traditions for something groovier, with a sound that could be best described as “bedroom R&B.” Frontman Ruban Nielson’s lyrics have a paranoid bent, focusing on how relationships change in an age of constant connectivity. Paranoia and nervousness has never sounded so funky. Check out “Can’t Keep Checking My Phone” below.
Multi-Love comes out on May 26th.
