Wolf Parade are one of those funny old bands that, on first listen, you think “Oh yeah, angular, post-punk rockers with some arty bloke yelping on top”. But something grabs you, some little catchy tune, a drum roll here, a guitar lick there, and before long you’re humming along to it on the Tube even though you’ve not got your iPod with you that day, much to the consternation of your fellow travellers.
What I’m trying to say is that they are Quite Good. And they’ve got a new album coming out next month, titled “Expo 86“. If it’s half as good as “Apologies to the Queen Mary” then I’ll be a happy man.
Out on Jun 29th on Sub Pop!
