“I went to the moon, I saw your head up in the clouds, What could I do?” is such a great opening line from this swoon-worthy NYC trio. Back in January we had the pleasure of sharing the premiere of Wooing’s “In Colour” video, a song taken from their debut EP, Daydream Time Machinereissued at the start of the year via Ba Da Bing Records. The New York trio will bookend with 2018 with the release of The Clouds, a new 7″ due out next month on Kanine Records. The single’s a-side “Could Have Been” is another great psych pop song, led by Rachel Trachtenburg’s breathy vocals and visionary lyrics. Working itself into a claustrophobic space, Wooing dig into brightened pockets of layered melodies and dense textural effects that rest between haunting tension and soaring above the clouds. Trachtenburg sings “once I came back down to planet Earth” creating an inescapable feeling of an alien presence, and we’re ready for the invasion. Ultimately the song deals with relationships lost as we’re left with the repeated “you could have been dear to me.”

Wooing offer hauntingly beautiful vocals backed by echoing guitars: the urgency of underground 90s rock (i.e. Helium, Quasi) meets the psychedelic Syd Barrett sounds of the 60s.

From the forthcoming 7″ The Clouds on Kanine Records,
