The WOBBLY LAMPS from Sarfend in the UK come back with their latest offering from the Polyvinyl Craftsmen label. It’s their second 7″ EP titled Drella and it takes things to an even noisier level than we heard before.
It’s been about a half a year since we encountered the Wobbly Lamps debut 7″ and since then it sounds like they’ve hit their stride. On Drella the band comes through with even more noisy viciousness than we heard before, evidenced immediately in the clangorous introduction of “Never Ever Bloody Anything Ever”. They follow through with melodic guitar shards and soulful, blown-out vocals, driving the song straight into metallic oblivion as the noisy textures burst through the roof. Halfway through the track they suddenly change gears for a build-up of grandiose proportions, but they never lose their cool in the process. They follow it up with the dark and dire sounding “Haxan”, leading the way with a nasty weave of dense, grungy guitars and frenzied vocals, creating a wave of ominous energy to thicken the air.
Take a few minutes to check out these blistering songs right below, and if that’s not enough you may want to go check out their debut 7″ while you’re at it.
