Alt-J - Buffalo

Still celebrating their Mercury Prize win, Alt-J feature with this track on the soundtrack to Silver Linings Playbook, the new film with Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper (pictured).  Buffalo is as beautiful as the two leading actors - all finger-picking guitars and gently lilting atmospherics.  The opening guitar line does sound just like Daughter though and as a whole, it doesn't quite have the magnetic appeal of their best tracks from 'An Awesome Wave'.  Still, Buffalo proves the band are more than the usual indie landfill providing background noise to quirky rom-coms.


Listen: The soundtrack to Silver Linings Playbook is available now.
