Essex noiseniks WOLFHOUNDS are back with a brand new single and new album to follow.
‘Can’t See The Light’ is the first single to be taken from the album Electric Music, the Romford band’s seventh album which follows on from 2017’s Untied Kingdom (…Or How to Come to Terms with Your Culture).
“Musically, ‘Can’t See The Light’ has a discordant guitar line – perhaps carrying echoes of John Barry’s The Persuaders theme – until it reaches a desperate crescendo; this feeling is captured brilliantly by David Janes’ claustrophobic and darkly psychedelic video,” says Wolfhounds’ frontman David Callahan. “All tunnels eventually emerge into the sun (as David Janes’ accompanying paranoid and sick-a-delic video shows) but while you’re underground it can seem like darkness is perpetual and inevitable.”
Electric Music was recorded, engineered and mixed at Cosmic Audio, Epping by Collapsed Lung’s Ant Chapman and features sleevenotes by Stewart Lee.
Forming as teenagers in 1984, the Wolfhounds released four albums and toured extensively with the likes of My Bloody Valentine and The Wedding Present before splitting in 1990. An influence on bands from Nirvana and Manic Street Preachers to Fontaines DC, the band reformed in 2006, eventually delivering new material in the shape of the Middle Aged Freaks album in 2014.
Electric Music is released through A Turntable Friend Records on 3 July. It’s available to pre-order here.
