Hejira – Litmus Test

Matthew Herbert's favourite band have a moody new single.


Words by: Aimee Cliff

Much more exciting than dipping a bit of paper into liquid and measuring it against a colour chart is this new song from HejiraLitmus Test. A moody slow-burner, it crawls up from sparse, echo-haunted vocals to become a sprawling guitar breakdown full of unsettling distortion and slightly off-kilter percussion; one for brooding with headphones.

Matthew Herbert told us how much he loves Hejira last year, calling their music a "magnetic, engaging listen". Read that here.
