Obligatory Wire Post

wire-band-2I think it’s time that we put aside the past of Wire at this point. It’s not that they haven’t been culturally significant since the late 70s (one of the reason’s this is an obligatory post), but I think it puts an unfair focus on their early work, and not on the excellent albums they’ve been putting out since their resurgence (the last three LPs are must own albums, in my opinion). On this brand new track, you can tell that it’s Wire; you can hear the playing style coming through, but it still feels as if the band are taking on new sonic territory. There’s shades of dream-pop, in angular post-punk sense, providing a texture of darker emotions that’s quite fascinating. This is the title track from the band’s forthcoming Nocturnal Koreans mini-LP, which will be out on April 22nd via Pinkflag.
