Catch Them LIVE at CMJ
10/22 – Lit Lounge
“…blistering/blissful” – Bullett
“…a three-piece band pursuing its own extrapolation of shoegaze, surf-punk and lo-fi garage-rock” – New York Times
“Guitars drip like melting icicles, vocals are stretched out into long, baleful moans and percussion is short, sharp and piercing. There’s a severity to the song that makes it hard to shake.” – Wondering Sound
“It’s a unique mélange of genres, melding beach rock breeziness with the type of driving, slowly evolving aesthetic that marked bands like My Bloody Valentine.” – Noisey
Watch “Blood Moon”
Interspersed with images of Wray, the woods, green and red lights, and of course, the song’s namesake, the blood moon, the Alabama band’s new music video will have you feeling out of this world. Director Paul Cordes Wilm expertly infuses the mysteries of the blood moon and Wray to deliver an ethereal musical experience.
Band member David Brown clarifies, “Blood Moon starts as a suggestion, moves toward a sense of wonder, and succumbs to realism.” Of the song itself, Brown elaborates, “The weighted guitars, rowing drums, and sheen vocals create a feeling of inevitability. The lyrical content of the song plays with this concept. Some things end just when they begin.”
Wray is David Brown, Blake Wimberly, and David Swatzell. Though they are new, their involvement in the music community starts over a decade ago with such bands as Last Flight In, Comrade, Nightmare Waterfall, and a handful of other projects you might not have had the chance to see if “punk rock” just isn’t your scene. But this project is something you don’t want to miss.
