Wintermute is two parts: one part Bloc Party thanks to their Leeds, UK home and one part Foals for the hyped up instrumentation. There’s plenty of pop here, but it’s inundated by modern elements of rock. They’ll soon be releasing Robot Works on Big Scary Monster Records and they just dropped a 3″ single for the song of the day.
That song, of course, is “Dead Or Not He’s Still Wearing Sunglasses” and its so-called B-side is “I Abandoned My Boy”. The driving rock is filled with a techy electricity and the video follows suit, showing the band performing at a house party. The performance is staged and thus the video is high quality. Check it out for yourself — these guys are pretty damn good! Also included below is “Disco Loadout” off the upcoming Robot Works.
