LISTEN: Battles Defy Pronunciation With “FF Bada”

Precision!

Fresh off their performance at FYF Fest, Battles have given us another taste of La Di Da Di. After treating us to “The Yabba,” the New York instrumental math equation have treated us to “FF Bada,” which makes the group two-for-two on nonsensical song titles. The group scatter minute pulses across a strange, jitterbugging beat that, like the best of their work, leaves you oscillating between discomfort and the need to dance.

Battles also announced a run of live dates, which you can see below.
