Formed from the ashes of the brilliant Algernon Doll, Glaswegian duo Ewan Grant and Owen Wicksted have just this month released their debut video under new name WOMPS.
The last Algernon Doll record ‘Omphalic‘ remains on heavy rotation at Birthday Cake For Breakfast HQ, so its wonderful to see WOMPS debut with the storming ‘Live A Little Less.‘
Recorded at Electrical Audio in Chicago with legendary producer Steve Albini, the fuzzy new track retains the bittersweet vocals, jangly guitar and thunderous drums of their previous work, whilst adding a totally new level of excitement from their revitalized partnership. A recent interview with the pair cited WOMPS as an equal collaboration, moving on from Algernon Doll which “for the most part, was all Ewan”
The unreleased ‘Dreams On Demand’ forms the second part of an upcoming Double A side with Live A Little Less, released through Damnably Records this September. Check out the new video below, and be sure to pre-order their debut single here.
