Chaotic and raucously compelling in equal measure, post-punk trio Social Haul announce their arrival with gritty debut effort ‘Wet Eyes’, set for release February 24th via FatCat Records (Honeyblood, The Twilight Sad, We Were Promised Jetpacks).
Partnering up with the cult indie label and fronted by TRAAMS’ Leigh Padley, the group’s first offering provides a firm indication of what to expect from the new project, with its potent lyricism, sprawling vocals and relentless riffage demonstrating their electrifying potential amidst a rip-roaring wall of noise.
Detailing their upcoming release, Padley explained: “‘Wet Eyes’ was inspired by an overheard conversation in the pub. The fellas were riffing on the inherent obsolescence of all human skill and the inevitable deterioration of their individual dreams. They concluded that it was in fact quite liberating to be but a cog in a machine and seemed to recognise their fortune in this understanding, all the while haphazardly navigating their flippant political leanings and the football scores. They had a good night I think, I thought it was quite nice”.
