Release Date: Out Now
Canadian trio Ace of Wands are back with new single ‘Lioness’ ahead of their forthcoming album of the same name and it is a treat. Rattling garage-blues guitars and crashing drums make for a frenetic energy and a real sense of urgency with an underbelly of paranoia. However, some fiercely strong singing that pushes the vocal chords to their limits smashes that paranoia with gritted teeth and a steely, unblinking stare. Ace of Wands occupy the same kind of space as Anna Calvi, PJ Harvey and early Florence + the Machine and on this evidence that new album is going to be essential listening.
22nd February – Horseshoe Tavern, Toronto
