Ahead of their new album Electric Music, out via A Turntable Friend in July 3rd, legendary London-based indie band, and contributors to THAT C86 NME tape Wolfhounds have released a new video and single, Can’t See The Light.
Talking of the track, the bands Frontman David Callahan says “Musically, ‘Can’t See The Light’ has a discordant guitar line – perhaps carrying echoes of John Barry’s The Persuaders theme – until it reaches a desperate crescendo; this feeling is captured brilliantly by David Janes’ claustrophobic and darkly psychedelic video. All tunnels eventually emerge into the sun (as David Janes’ accompanying paranoid and sick-a-delic video shows) but while you’re underground it can seem like darkness is perpetual and inevitable”.
Angular and anxious, Can’t see the light skirts around indie/post-punk territory, these chiming guitars and pulsating bass driving the track in different directions until they come together in this glorious chorus. There’s an anger about Callahans vocals and politically charged lyrics, and as it it hits the guitars turn nasty to back it up. Brilliant stuff.
