Beloved '90s alt-rockers the Dismemberment Plan—their gender-melding 1999 album Emergency & I is an influential classic—return on October 15 with Uncanney Valley, their first album in 12 years. And the just-released first new album track, "Invisible," proves that frontman Travis Morrison hasn't lost his knack for crafting winningly off-kilter melodies.
Centered around an inventive sample of orchestral strings and eerily staccato piano playing—both of which give the song a fascinating sense of disorientation—this track fits in with their classic catalog without sounding stuck in the '90s, unlike many other re-formed bands from the era.
