LISTEN: Unknown Mortal Orchestra Is “So Good At Being In Trouble”

Coming right out of the gates in 2013, Culture Collide Alumni Unknown Mortal Orchestra has unleashed “So Good At Being In Trouble”, the first taste of their highly anticipated sophomore album II, out February 5th via Jagjaguwar.

 

Ruban Nielson’s voice is soft and smooth finding it’s place perfectly, twining with the subtle guitar. A simple grooving bass line and a lo-fi sounding drum rhythm pair well to anchor the melody that’s spilling all over this sweet R&B track.
 

The release of II is only the beginning of what is sure to be a giant year for Unknown Mortal Orchestra. Their national television debut on Jimmy Fallon on Feb. 25th falls in the middle of a massive tour that sees them playing in Japan, Europe and all over North America. Stay posted for the forthcoming video for “So Good At Being In Trouble” starring actor/musician Chris Mintz-Plasse of the Young Rapscallions.
