Wild Powwers description of their new single is quite fitting, calling it ‘a tsunami’ one is trying to escape…except just like they exclaim, you can’t escape it; it sweeps you up. The drums have a hard roll, while ominous guitar lines slink in and out of the front of the mix; there’s a haunting howl from below, like a siren’s call. Then they jump into a heavy stomp, bubbling with hints of sinister pop undertones. The group unleashes their pow[w]ers upon us in the song’s closing minutes, reveling in the tsunami’s final destruction. The group will release Skin on October 12th via Nadine Records.
It seems to me that Club 8 have their sites set on one direction, crafting danceable indiepop that’s going to hit hard in the clubs (are there still clubs?). The group have dwelled in similar territory, but this latest single seems to really go straight for the dancing jugular, pulsating rhythm and all. Still, the softness of the vocals makes it difficult for anyone to pull themselves away from what’s going on, even if you’re slow grooving with some random stranger. They’ve got a new album, Pleasure, slated for release on November 20th via Labrador, and I’m definitely intrigued, if not rather interested to see where these danceable singles fall in line with the rest of the record.
