new music: BEFORE THEY HAND OVER THE KEYS TO 'WHALE CITY', WARMDUSCHER SHARE NEW SINGLE 'STANDING ON THE CORNER'



Before they bless the world with new album Whale City, Warmduscher continue their noble and righteous march into our hearts and minds. New single Standing on the Corner comes fast and hard; a real loaded diaper of a record; a bassline that shakes the very core of your system and some grotesquely lusty Clams Baker lyrical diarhorrea to boot. You've heard Big Wilma, you've heard Sweet Smell of Florida, this is where the shit gets real and the altitude gets high.

We've already heard Whale City, the band's second full length, and I'm willing to bet you won't hear a bigger bastard of an album all year. A yellow-eyed opus, frothing at the gnashers, it's ugly, sweaty, and also beautiful; Standing on the Corner is an essential slice of Whale City pie that should whet your appetite.


Whale City comes out worldwide June 6th - pre-order here if you like your music good and 12 inches in circumference

You can read our lengthy interview with Warmduscher in Issue 1 of SEE YOU MATE (YEAH, SEE YOU MATE). Godspeed!

premiere: 'OPAQUE', THE EFFORTLESSLY TRANSPORTATIVE NEW SINGLE FROM DOSE

Dose are a group from Newcastle, whom make art rock with a thick, impenetrable wall of sound. Often, the problem with dreamier, shoegazier groups is often that everything blends into one sonic blur, but, Dose are the antidote to this. There's a lot of clarity in their music, crisp guitar melodies and vocals that hover atop the miasma like a spectral overseer. Mesmeric, gripping, Opaque is their latest offering. Urbane uncertainty and a sound driven by pedalboards that look like spaceship control desks make Dose's sound the essential soundtrack to days rich in April showers.

Below, you can hear the MJ-produced Opaque, and find out more about it from Sean and Ewan from the band.



Tell me about Opaque. What inspired it?
Sean:​ Although musically the original inspiration came from messing around with a weird new pedal - Montreal Assembly’s Count to Five for anyone else as obsessed as me - Opaque began as a shift in sound for us, relying less on all-encapsulating effects and more on s…

interview: GET TO KNOW EYESORE AND THE JINX, LIVERPOOL GARAGE ROCK PROVOCATEURS

We held our launch at the beginning of the month with Wild Fruit Art Collective headlining, a real Liverpuddlian thunderbolt of a band. Until then, our primary focus had been on the scene brewing in London, alongside bands from a myriad of places that weren't all too far.

Now, we rotate our periscope north, to Liverpool. Whilst Wild Fruit remain amongst our favourite bands, Liverpool is seemingly crawling with other such bands that channel the same kinda gross and grimy influences into truly reptilian music. The bizarrely named Eyesore and the Jinx are our latest obsessions. Fire-breathing, yellow eyed grottabilly music on show, as they proudly unveil their debut single Gated Community.

At SEE YOU MATE, we regard it as our civic duty to inform you on such groups, and so here, Josh Miller dishes the dirt on the things that make the group tick.

Who is in the band, and how did you form? Can you tell me about the name?
The band consist of; myself on bass guitar and vocals, Liam Bates …

interview: WELCOME TO WHALE CITY... AND WIPE YOUR FEET ON THE WAY IN. WARMDUSCHER INTERVIEWED.

"I woke up this morning. I carved her name into my arm, kissed her on the cheek and said goodbye forever. No bags packed. No round-trip tickets. I’m heading straight to Whale City, where they’re all going to know my name. I see the lights off this full tank of gas. I watch these flames burn in the distance. I’m coming home. These golden rings will see me through and the dust is going to fill my lungs. My hands, bruised and bleeding from the constant pounding of the dashboard. Here it goes. Whale City.”

Gearing up for the release to the follow up to 2015’s under the radar classic ‘Khaki Tears’, we talk ‘Whale City’ with garage-scronk madcaps Warmduscher.

There are very few powers as raw, uninhibited or ferocious as that possessed by Warmduscher. The quintet are the bastard lovechild of Clams Baker and The Witherer (Paranoid London), Lightnin’ Jack and The Saulcano (Fat White Family) and Mr Salt Fingers Lovecraft (Childhood). Whilst their sound falls firmly within the realms of boo…
