While much of Switch and Diplo’s work as Major Lazer has been enjoyable, it’s fair to say that the word ‘subtlety’ seldom crops up in discussions of their work. Which is precisely what makes ‘Get Free’ such a pleasant surprise. The dancehall-channelling synths and catchy hooks are still in place, but very much reigned in. Topped off by a star turn from Dirty Projectors’ Amber Coffman (twitter) on vocals, the track exudes an understated brilliance that easily surpasses the duo’s previous offerings.
