The Wharves - "NAZ"

I almost don't know what to make of The Wharves. The way I am about to describe their new single is going to sound awful, but somehow it works. "NAZ" starts off with thunderous but minimalist drumming (think Meg White), and then combines the vocals and harmonies of a folk band like Mountain Man with the post-grunge (and harmonizing) of That Dog or Cake Like with that sense of dark and dread of a slower Black Sabbath song. I know, I know... It sounds like a total mess, but it works so well and melds into this haunting and hypnotic cohesive song. You really need to check this out.

You can watch the cat heavy video for "NAZ" below. (Also, cats in the UK chase green lights apparently? Mind blown). After that, you'll want to check out their Bandcamp and follow them on Facebook or Twitter. The "NAZ" 7" is due on November 13 on Upset the Rhythm. You can pre-order it here.
