You Never Get Tired of Wire

1521775_665148380190715_237386686_nThe punk history books always look towards the Ramones or The Clash, but the one group I always gravitated towards was Wire.  Sure, Joe Strummer brought in some Jamaican influences, but I always felt that Wire were the one group that really pushed the boundaries.  30 years and more later, they’re still crafting music we can find vital to our daily listening lives.  This new single has the band working with their anxious angular guitar cuts, but the vocals provide a softness that offers the song a strength that very few, if any, bands can master.  It’s a tune from their forthcoming self-titled album, which is slated for a April 13th release…and just another reason why music nerds will look to the band as one of the best constants in history.
