Reliably informed

The fourth single from Wax Heart Sodality is another atmospheric, self-assured and moody piece of aural cinema. It’s wonderfully self-contained and perfectly preserved, as if they’ve been kept inside a jar for the last year, with plenty to give to you if you just open the lid.

With a pop and a twist they’re into the air, filling it like thick, creamy smoke. They’re a portal to another world, with ghostly harmonies and dark lead vocals that drift low along the ground like Joy Division before them. Once they’re out of that jar, they’re never going back in: the track ramps up to a kind of steel worker paradise, all sparks and cries, and guitars like slow-motion chainsaws. Go and get swallowed up in it.
