WIRE – Imperishable Sound Explorers…


31 March 2016


The fact that British post punk pioneers WIRE are still highly relevant is just because they always keep on exploring new – exciting – sounds, because they reincarnate themselves constantly and because their creativity seems inexhaustible. After last year’s praised self-titled LP the band are already back with another (mini) album. NOCTURNAL KOREANS
will be released on April 22nd via their Pink Flag label. Here’s the artwork…


Singer/songwriter Colin Newman on the new work in a press statement: “The WIRE album was quite respectful of the band, and Nocturnal Koreans is less respectful of the band—or, more accurately, it’s the band being less respectful to itself — in that it’s more created in the studio, rather than recorded basically as the band played it, which was mostly the case with WIRE. A general rule for this record was: any trickery is fair game, if it makes it sound better.”

The band just shared INTERNAL EXILE, a new track from the forthcoming album. Build around a repetitive, hypnotizing riff and a groovy mid-tempo beat WIRE takes you on an atmospheric trip into their richly orchestrated pop world. Start daydreaming here…
