Alternative radio issues a blazing reception to alt-J's "Left Hand Free" and Priory's "Weekend."
Make it two in a row for alt-J’s “Left Hand Free,” which again reigns as alternative radio’s most-added track.
According to Mediabase, the song earned pickups from a staggering 24 alternative stations this week. Already the #25 song on the format’s airplay chart, “Left Hand Free” now appears to be a surefire smash in the making.
It was not, however, alone at the top of the mountain this week.
Priory’s “Weekend” also received adds from 24 alternative stations. While only 21 of those are within Mediabase’s monitored group (compared to 23 for “Left Hand Free”), the total is irrefutably impressive and a sign that the song is also due for a solid run at the format.
Interpol’s “All the Rage Back Home” (9), Bastille’s “Flaws” (8) and Milky Chance’s “Stolen Dance” (8) also landed on the list of alternative radio’s five most-added songs.
