(Dirt Cult Records)
After leaving their mark on three continents, Zaragoza, Spain’s WARSONG are back with a new 12", their first sung entirely in Spanish. This is their most complexly rich record to date - an arresting soundtrack for dark times. Those who have been following this band for a while will also notice less distortion, longer and more elaborated song structures, and an unexpected treat on “Dejando Atrás” featuring guest vocals from the singer of ACCIDENTE (whose new LP will also be released on Dirt Cult in 2016). . I’d be hard pressed to find a current comparison because WARSONG has few musical contemporaries- they are truly carving out their own path. I hear the convergence of diverse elements such as THE ONLY ONES, early NEW ORDER, the WIPERS, SONIC YOUTH, and THE RAMONES blended up and spewed out against the neoliberal end times.
