City Slang are thrilled to announce the signing of WIVES alongside news of the Queens, NY-based four-piece's debut single, 'Waving Past Nirvana' b/w 'Kinda Like You', which sees release as a 7" on May 24th, 2019 with the A-side streaming now. It serves as a tantalising teaser of WIVES' long-awaited debut album, which is due later this summer. Wide-eyed and hyper-aware, WIVES' sound pulses with urgency. The quartet are the latest fit in a long lineage of New York's gritty, melodic-tinged punk-hook-driven, grungy dark-wave that's tethered to daily anxiety without resorting to cynicism. Both the noisy dissonance of Sonic Youth and the clever, cerebral sneering of The Fall simmer as touchstones within the band's music. 'Waving Past Nirvana' trudges forward, a sort of thesis for WIVES' sound. It delves unabashedly into feeling removed, its narrator rejecting spiritual enlightenment, literally 'waving past nirvana'. The swaggering cut pulls from the swaying beat of '80s rap, while the chorus jumps forward a decade into a grunge-tinged, anthemic roar.
