This is a very nice song by Alt-J, which is surprisingly simple.
Funnily enough, the intro is exactly the same as "No Surprises" from Radiohead, but 
played faster, and with more overlaid guitars. You wouldn't notice it though.

[Verse 1]

Em        G                                   Bm                A
Just like Johnny Flynn said, 'the breath I've taken and the one I must' to
   Em
go on.

Em         G                      Bm                      A
Put the grenade pin in your hand, so you understand who's boss.

Em    G                 Bm            A
My defeat sleeps top to toe with her success.

Em
Oh this is from
A

A               D
This is from Matilda


[Verse 2]

Em      G
And she needs you
Bm      A
This is for Matilda
Em      G
And she needs you
Bm      A
This is for Matilda


(The end is just the succession of)

D(x2)  G   A

And there we have it! I must admit that the "and she needs you" sounds a bit odd, but I 
think its that. I think that they only strum a few of the strings in the chords.

"And she needs you" sounds a bit odd because it should be Em Bm G Bm instead of Em G Bm A.

This sounds ok alone, the chords work with the vocals, but with the track it sounds very off.

I tried with Em D G D and it sounds good, don't you think ?
