Autre Ne Veut’sCounting” was impressive in its ability to smoothly incorporate so many sounds into one song, and although “Play By Play” is sonically a little less cluttered, if anything it is even more¬†impressive. Arthur Ashin’s sometimes soaring, sometimes vulnerable falsetto is very much the focal point of this song, and the restrained slow-build of the front half just makes the pay-off when that glorious chorus drops in even better.

Autre Ne Veut’s new album Anxiety is out February 26th.
