Belfast’s And So I Watch You From Afar have unleashed a new track from their forthcoming album, Heirs, over at The Fader. The new track, titled “Wasps”, is brimming with intricate, melodic guitars that spiral and flutter about your head. It is, unsurprisingly so, like being stuck inside of a wasp hive. On the new track, the band offered the following comments:
“‘Wasps’ began as a six minute track…We then sliced and sanded it down to two-and-a-half minutes of the purest form of our initial idea. ‘Wasping’ became our word for ripping songs to pieces and throwing away all the bits that weren’t needed. ‘Thats’s good but it needs to be wasped,’ or, ‘Shit, we really wasped that.'”
Feel free to stream the song after the break.
Heirs will be released on May 4 via Sargent House.

Whenever Aaron Turner attaches his name to a musical project, people take notice. Whether it be the forward-thinking metal compositions of Isis, the sludgy monkey-business of Old Man Gloom, the haunting drones of Mamiffer, the hardcore-tinged debauchery of Split Cranium and others, it’s hard to deny Turner’s musical prowess. So when Sumac was announced, everyone, including myself, was instilled with insurmountable excitement. Turner is joined by the equally proficient Brian Cook (Russian Circles, Botch, etc) and Nick Yacyshyn (Baptists), and the end-result is absolutely tremendous.Brimming with complexity and colossal heaviness, The Deal delivers the all the goods in a jam-packed 54-minute duration.
