“Though DiFranco’s tinkered with funk and jazz sounds before, it’s possible that ‘Binary’ is DiFranco’s funkiest and jazziest tune to date. ‘Binary’ is a heady, insular tune where all of the organ blasts and liquid basslines are in lockstep with one another. DiFranco doesn’t even really dare to interrupt them until about 45 seconds in, and even then, she sings in a staccato way about not just hearing but perceiving, so her vocal work doesn’t really get in the way.”
“There’s a terrific tension in the sound,” Bob Boilen writes, “an underpinning of mystery set against a baroque, but modern, pop foreground.” Watch the video on NPR Music here, and pre-order their self-titled debut album here!
