Unknown Mortal Orchestra’s next single from II is the R&B-indebted “So Good at Being in Trouble,” which sees the three-piece take their ponderous and intricate guitar riffs, lo-fi production, and minimalist beats to slow-burning blues territory. Frontman Ruban Nielson croons in confessional falsetto about being so good at being in trouble yet so bad at being in love (you know how it is) over a super-precise looped drumbeat, tender guitar (that central riff is decidedly Jimmy Cliff-esque), and layers of fuzzy, nostalgic haze. With this track and “Swim and Sleep (Like a Shark)” as primers, we bet you’re excited to see how the rest of the record will turn out. Read our review here. It drops February 5.
