Autolux will be one of the first bands to release an album on 30th Century Records, Danger Mouse’s new imprint under Columbia Records. That yet-untitled follow-up to 2010’s Transit Transit won’t be the first thing the band puts out on the label overall, however. The LA experimental rockers have contributed a new track entitled “Change My Head” to 30th Century Records Compilation Volume I, the label’s debut release due out December 18th.
“Change My Head” is a dreamy slice of pop, built on subtle guitar moans groaning underneath piano chords slowly plinking out like a barroom pianist at the end of the night. That is until the chorus, which pops off like slowly exploding stars, twinkling notes falling in the background as the drums seem to be pounding themselves awake. Still, the song never strays too far from its mellow vibes, making it an utterly pleasant listen while maintaining an excitement in its composition that pays off big in the outro. Take a listen below.
Ahead of their new LP, Autolux also recently shared their Boots-produced track “Soft Scene”. For more of the 30th Century Records Compilation Volume I, check out The Arcs’ “Fools Gold”, Big Search’s “Please Do Not Explain”, and Nine Pound Shadow’s “Melody”.
