CLICK LINK HERE: The Wants - New Album (Teaser)

New Album:

The Wants’ new album Bastard is inspired by acts like Public Image Limited (PiL), Massive Attack, and Autechre, centering around intricate electronic rhythms and pounding synth bass, with guitar oscillating between big riffs and noisy art rock.

Lyrics range from labyrinthine stream-of-consciousness to raw, earnest proclamations of love, terror, and slogging, thematically rooted in a dysfunctional life in New York City.

Recorded by: Peter Katis (The National; Interpol) and stereo and ATMOS mix by Jeremy Cimino

Ongoing visual collaborations with Madison Carroll (photographer) and Erin Vassilopoulos (film director)
