WRAITH, THE

gloom ballet (2019/SOUTHERN LORD)

POST-PUNK/DEATH-ROCK. Coming on like a sleeker combination of fellow Yanks THE LOST END and revitalised Brit post-punkers 1919, the band also throw in some of the usual old markers too (hints of DEATH CULT, KILLING JOKE and a large dose of NEW MODEL AREMY) to create a superior take on the post-punk genre choc-full of pulsing bass, jangling guitars, synth washes aplenty and insistent, skittery percussion. On "gloom ballet" every song glides neatly into the next, building a suite of songs without any weak links.
