Montreal indie rockers Wolf Parade return with their first new album in seven years. Across three acclaimed albums, the band’s blend of glam, prog and synth-rock helped to define indie in the early noughties. After breaking indefinitely in 2010, Wolf Parade sound as “tight, powerful, unified, fresh, and exciting” (Noisy) as ever. Described as possessing a “clamorous, percussive urgency” (The Guardian), much like their friends and fellow Canadians Arcade Fire, the band “rolls like a Ritalin-deprived power-Bowie …over Pixified rhythms” (Pitchfork).
Support from Frigs, a compelling Toronto band who draw influence from the raw grunge of PJ Harvey and the sprawling post-punk of early Sonic Youth.
