Hailing from Sheffield, Sister Wives are described as "post-punk, prog-flecked psychedelia." Their songs are sung in both English and Welsh. This may sound like it could be a bit of a mess, but their new single is a masterpiece. "Wandering Along / Rwy'n Crwydro" is an intense, driving track that strides the line between post-punk and prog-rock perfectly, and we didn't even know there was a line between those genres. It's filled with haunting vocals, a driving beat, swirling guitars, and synths that are tasked with holding the whole thing together, which they do... barely, but in a spectacular way.
You can listen to "Wandering Along / Rwy'n Crwydro" below. Gweler Ein Gofid, the upcoming EP from Sister Wives, will be out November 6 on Do It Thissen. You can pre-order the album here. For more on Sister Wives, check out the band's Facebook.
