Five years in the making, much missed lo-fi stalwarts Wetdog announce new album and preview first single ‘Messenger’.
The three of Rivka Gillieron, Sarah Datblygu and Billy Easter put out their last post-punk offering Frauhaus! in 2009, throwing similarly angular shapes to that of noise-nik Micachu and co. Since then, trio has become a transatlantic proposal.
Divine Times finds the band romantically strewn across oceans but the cross-Atlantic message in bottles are still laden down with their signature deadpan humour and disjointed bliss. ‘Messenger’ dances around toppling drum fills and wandering bass lines, both mesmerising and a little ascent into delirium.
