Things are snowballing: The Avalanches hide new song ‘Subways’ on phone hotline

The mysterious fellas are at it again!

Mysterious Aussie fellas The Avalanches are at it again - they’ve hidden a new song called ‘Subways’ on a phone line.

Beady-eyed fans first clocked the number on posters which appears around London. Phone it, and the line plays new music on a loop. According to Shazam, it’s a new Avalanches track called ‘Subways’.

The latest crafty hints come shortly after The Avalanches shared a video starring Father John Misty and Ariel Pink, and hinted at a new album.

The band - who released their last album 'Since I Left You' in 2000 - make their live return with a headline show at London's Oval Space. They're also set to play at Primavera and Brighton's Wild Life festival.

The Avalanches will play Wild Life (11th-12th June), where DIY is an official media partner. Tickets are on sale now. Visit for more information.
