WIM have emerged on the scene out of relative obscurity. There have been whispers about them for years following their wondrous live shows; and now their haunting tunes will bring them into the limelight. Now Modular is proud as punch to announce their debut album to be released...
WIM's debut, self-titled record has been a creative meeting of minds, having been produced by local legend Tony Buchen (Andy Bull, Ray Man 3, Kid (Andy Bull, Ray Man 3, Kid Confucious) and mixed by industry aristocracy Bob Clearmountain (Springsteen, Roxy Music, INXS) in L.A. The result is an album that encapsulates the best of classic song writing and modern ideas, executed in a phenomenal fashion. The record itself doesn't ooze of a buzz band way ahead of itself but rather a gradually growing group of musicians doing what they do best.
From the stomping album opener 'Collossus' to the poignant first single - 'See You Hurry', the band exudes confidence, style and prestige. The album takes many turns, as a journey is formed with tracks like 'America' and the enthnic tinged 'John'. You not only listen, but feel this music, with every listen, your senses open up and take in what is a densely beautiful album.
WIM don't create buzz through cheap stunts or Twitter; rather, they excite and amaze with long sets, great tunes and glitter.
Do yourself a favour and get drawn into the depths of this band's sound. You won't regret it for a second as every spin of WIM is a new discovery. The shock of the new has never sounded this good.
