New Singing! WIVES from New York Rockin City!
🚨 NEW SIGNING 🚨 We are super excited to announce a brand new band to the world and the City Slang roster! They're called WIVES, they're from Queens, NYC and they're undoubtedly going to be your new favourite band.
First single 'Waving Past Nirvana' is available to stream and download now / 7" vinyl will drop on May 24th 👉 https://WIVES.lnk.to/WavingPastNirvana
The quartet are the latest fit in a long lineage of New York's gritty, melodic-tinged punk-hook-driven, grungy dark-wave that's tethered to daily anxiety without resorting to cynicism. Both the noisy dissonance of Sonic Youth and the clever, cerebral sneering of The Fall simmer as touchstones within the band's music.
