Music by Bergman: The Avalanches

The Avalanches‘ acclaimed debut album Since I Left You is composed almost entirely of samples from other records — but there’s nothing lazy or unimaginative about their approach to recording…

Few records managed to capture the dizzy rush of the cut-and-paste aesthetic as succinctly as The Avalanches‘ Since I Left You. With its immaculately sewn patchwork of found sounds and gussied-up rhythms, the Australian duo’s charming debut seduced almost anyone who came near it.

Entitled ‘Running Red Lights’, The Avalanches new track features Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo, LA-based artist and Pink Siifu. Last month, the electronic group also shared a new track with Blood Orange, AKA Dev Hynes, ‘We Will Always Love You’. It was the first new music since 2017, when The Avalanches revealed that they had begun work on a new album following the release of 2016’s ‘Wildflower’. That album is expected to drop later this year.
