We’ve been following the buzz on London based Wolf Gang for a while now, and we’ve heard impressive tunes like “Dancing With The Devil” and “Lions In Cages”. Their latest from the forthcoming Suego Faults, “Something Unusual,” is dripping with 80s nostalgia, as synth pop and dreamy as A-ha’s “Take On Me.” The song glitters and sparkles with joyful reverb and vintage drum machines, frontman Max McElligott’s vocals as thoughtful and pensive as the backdrop that accompanies it. In regards to fellow 80s enthusiasts, it’s as poppy as Cut Copy, as new wave as Twin Shadow, and as dreamy as Wild Nothing, all rolled up in one. Suego Faults comes out June 27th.
