Wet Hair have announced a new full-length to be released by Chicago's De Stijl records. In Vogue Spirit sees the duo expanding their sound, as well as their line up. Now, with bass player in tow, the trio really hones into a similar territory Suicide took during the 80's.
"Echo Lady", the LP's single, is a propulsive tune that shares resemblance to quite a few kraut rock groups. The song structure has been streamlined towards a more general pop sensibility, while the fidelity the same. While the video seems to be set in some psychedelic desert paradise. The album will be released May 6th and might even good beer drinking music come summer now that I think of it.
Wet Hair will be on tour you can check him at the dates below.
While above you'll find a fantastic video by Michael Yonkers for the track "Cold Dance." There is no part of this video I do not love. It mixes a serious cold wave track that I wouldn't be surprised to be done by more contemporary acts such as S.S.P.S or anything happening over at Weird records. I'd also like to point out that I probably look a lot like this dancing to this track myself. So does that mean I'm biased towards liking this then?
