Fresh from dropping ‘Goes Black’ last month, NYC quartet Big Ups return with ‘Wool’, the next cut to whet appetites ahead of debut album, Eighteen Hours of Static, due for European release on 13th January 2014 on CD, digital formats and limited edition green vinyl. Dead Labour handle the US release.
Premiered by Stereogum, ‘Wool’ seethes with a slow burning intensity, building towards a bilious climax. The track is peppered with a youthful exuberance and reckless abandon while still holding true to a melodic song writing core, coming across how Fugazi would sound if MacKaye loosened up and kicked back with a beer from time to time.
