Our assumption is supported by a possible preview of their new record that was posted on Stereogum this morning, a live version of a new song "Arms" from a concert in Sydney, Australia. And while getting really excited about kinda fuzzy live versions of new songs right before their recorded versions come out makes us feel a little overexcited and teenage, you can already hear how polished this one sounds in concert, and will soon sound on record. I bet those soothing keyboard lines, spacious drums, and rising string swells are going to sound just great! More ready for this than I might have previously expected. 2013 is shaping up real nice, folks.
Listen to the recording of "Arms" below, maybe while standing behind some really tall guy and pretending he is blocking your stage view:
