Listen: Unknown Mortal Orchestra - "Swim and Sleep (Like A Shark)"

Last year, Unknown Mortal Orchestra made a real splash with their debut self-titled full length and as they gear up to release their sophomore record (which just went into mastering last week), we're given our first preview with new track "Swim and Sleep (Like A Shark)".

With it's pleasant, tuneful soft-rock lilt, it's the sort of track that would've be out of place on a sound of the 70s music compilation mix and yet something about it is still so quintessentially UMO that it makes total sense that it comes from the now Portland based band. It's short, sweet, simple and sample-less and is just right to get you properly keyed up for their sophomore effort which will be out on Jagjaguwar when it's finally complete. Here's hoping that's soon.
