Wing Dam (Baltimore, MD) + Balms + Couches ~ 7:30pm ~ $8 ~
One will never have to worry about a shortage of incredible music coming from Baltimore. Wing Dam, a trio who’ve been melting hearts and faces since 2013’s Thick Phase/No Splash, have unveiled the first single from their sophomore LP, Shifter Bliss. On “Software,” the band is completely unhinged. The result is staggering. With an assist from Mobtown Studios’ Mat Leffler-Schulman, we’re treated to just over 1:30 of heavy fuzz-pop. Even while ripping away, the band is cognizant of when to pull back, allowing the delicate vocals of Austin Tally and Sara Autrey to come through peacefully. This is the Wing Dam we’ve been waiting for. Shifter Bliss drops 7/1 on Friends Records.
