TRACK OF THE DAY: Battles – The Yabba

On hearing the word ‘Yabba‘, most will be reminded of the name of that black market Thai drug that translates literally to ‘Madness‘. Well, Battles new track ‘The Yabba‘ is similar, both in name and in nature. The band’s first track in four years, The Yabba is seven minutes of complex loops, intricate patterns, glitches, jerks, loops and beats, all doused in that classic Battles krautrock leaning.

Described as ‘full frontal, heightened and unforgiving’, The Yabba is taken from Battles forthcoming LP.
