WIFE – new single and EP from ex-Altar of Plagues man
What you may need to know…
01. James Kelly, formerly of atmospheric black metallers Altar of Plagues, continues his solo electronica journey as WIFE.
02. Following the band’s disbandment, WIFE emerged as a complete break from Kelly’s previous associations and body of work, with Pitchfork premiering debut single Bodies in late 2012. A debut album, What’s Between, followed on Tri-Angle Records, American touring, and LADBible immortality came soon after.
03. In case you missed it elsewhere earlier this week, streaming above is the video for Glass Interruption, the lead-off for upcoming EP Standard Nature, releasing on September 23rd via Profound Lore.
04. Pending more announcements on this side of the pond, Kelly’s next excursion will be a string of live dates Stateside with Animal Collective.
Verdict: Tense, challenging electronica that both keeps you in its atmosphere and in suspense.
