WOMBO – ” Mountain ” EP

Posted: December 5, 2021 in MUSIC

From Louiseville Kentucky Wombo are a 3 peice with a new EP “Mountain” out on Fire Records, from which we bring you their video single “One of These’. The video has vibes of Blair Witch (set in a basement-type rehearsal space that many of us will be familiar with) while the track istelf has lusciously haunting vocal melodies against a backdrop of nineties Pixies-esque guitar. There is an air of melancholic dischord about both the track and the video which is particularly great. 

The weird world of Wombo is a kaleidoscopic journey of sharp turns and surprising visions, a melting pot of influences with a cheeky cheshire-cat grin that coalesce into a trippy but infinite universe, a portal into their unique vantage point without limitation.

Already committed to living outside the traditionally-heralded country sound of the music scene in their hometown of Louisville Kentucky, Sydney Chadwick (vocals) and Cameron Lowe (guitar) had previously played in punk pop band the Debauchees, and with the addition of Joel Taylor (drums) in 2016 they found a winning combination of more straightforward indie rock combined with Chadwick’s pitched up, oscillating vocals and unpredictable shifts in melody that see the band moving forward at an impressive pace.
