New Entry: Wombo Release New single "Snakey"

Louisville, KY indie rock/post punk/psych band Wombo have released their new single "Snakey".

The song is taken from their new upcoming album 'Fairy Rust', which will be out on July 29 through Fire Talk. Pre-order your copy here.

‘Fairy Rust,’ contemplates the spaces in-between, a meeting of the physicality of the land with the fluidity of the imagination, to uncanny effect. Across twelve tracks, sharpened guitar work, distorted freakouts and downtempo musings see the trio make a sonic leap forward into new and transformative places. Conceived over the course of the last two years, the record is steeped in its own time warp of escapism, and influenced by fairytales like the Brothers Grimm and Hans Christian Anderson (“RVG” is short for “Rip Van Winkle”) that blend surreal situations with the mundane. ‘Fairy Rust’ plays on this preoccupation with fantasy (“especially in a time where people are seeming to gravitate towards these kinds of stories”), and the resulting record sounds like no one else.
