Battles ‘La Di Da Di’ | Album Review

A band brimming with intellect, innovation and an infectiously joyous sense of abandon, it’s hard to imagine what Battles could possibly think of next. Whilst many would look away from the intense gaze of album number three, ‘La Di Da Di’ stares back without a flicker of doubt.

Operating without the restraints present on previous LPs, this is Battles’ most cohesive album yet. Each song is a refined yet uncontrollable force that explodes with groove-laden aplomb, relentlessly one-upping those before it and defying all expectations in its stride.

In ‘La Di Da Di’ Battles have created their most quintessential release to date, an album of pure brilliance that masterfully perfects the blueprint.
