Eighth album Wallop, is another stellar addition to the wildly impressive catalogue they have built over the course of nearly two decades. It stands as a testament to their hardworking approach and ceaseless desire to push their boundaries. Recorded over the past year in lead singer Nic Offer’s Brooklyn apartment, the band picks up where 2017’s Shake The Shudder left off, further exploring the fringes of dance music with a focused edge and care free spirit.
Wallop sees friends from across the spectrum appearing on a number of tracks, including Liars frontman Angus Andrew, Maria Uzor of British dance aesthetes Sink Ya Teeth, and Glasser’s synth-pop wizard Cameron Mesirow, who all join Offer and) co-vocalist Meah Pace on this barn-burning party of a record.
With an array of producers lending a hand—including Cole M.G.N. (Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti, Julia Holter), Graham Walsh (Holy Fuck), and longtime collaborator Patrick Ford—Wallop was eventually stitched together to reflect the colourful, body-moving tapestry that it’s end result represents.
