Wray at MOTR With Seamless Groove

By on  Comments

Though new, WRAY’s involvement in the music community starts over a decade ago with such bands as Last Flight In, Comrade, Nightmare Waterfall, and a handful of other projects you might not have had the chance to see if “punk rock” just isn’t your scene.

Their self-titled release was recorded in their hometown of Birmingham, Alabama at Ol Elegante Studio and engineer Daniel Farris (Man Or Astro-man?, St. Vincent) managed to capture the atmospheric beauty that comes with every live show. This three piece demands the attention of a real rock show.

Wray isn’t afraid to revel in repetition, churning (like butter) confident, seamless grooves firmly in the tradition of NEU!, Faust, or Can. Their shimmering, headphone-ready tones owe much to Slowdive, My Bloody Valentine, and even The Cure, but without the crippling self-absorption of chillwave, dreampop, or whatever all the sad bastards are listening to this week.

Catch Wray at MOTR Pub Wednesday, April 22nd with In Tall Buildings at 10p!
