WE- Hurdy Gurdy 7” (NunMusic 2007)
From Aural Innovations #38 (Jan 2008)
This is the 2nd single from the upcoming LP, Tension and Release (which is
awesome!). Hurdy Gurdy, for which the band have a strange computer generated
video up on their web site) is a really cool track with a pretty heavy and dirty
guitar riff and garage like drum sound but Thomas really sucks you in with a
catchy chorus. Not at all what you would think for Norwegian radio music. Great
song. The B-side is R’N’R (I put my life…) recorded live at
the Quart Festival in 2004. It is a really interesting song that the band does
not play all that often with some great slide guitar and female back up singers!
This EP is only available as a promo CD single and as a 7” in 200 copies
on multicolour vinyl!
