The noisepop of Wives goes on with the traditional New York style of raw noisey guitarsounds and fine melodic hooks. Their upcoming debut album So Removed is a dark wave of grungy post punk that will flood over you. Songs like Waving Past Nirvana and the brand new single The 20 Teens ontvouwen fold into absurd quasi-fictional outburst of frontman Jay Beach.
he noisy dissonance of Sonic Youth, the edgy hooks of early Pixies, and the clever, cerebral sneering of the Fall simmer as touchstones of the band’s sound: grungy dark-wave that’s tethered to daily anxiety without resorting to cynicism. High quality indielabel City Slang saw their potential early and signed this great band. And finally in November they will visit Rotterdam for a show onboard.
