Strange Wilds – “Pronoia” (Stereogum Premiere)

Although their roster has branched out in recent years, Sub Pop made their name on loud, angry guitar music from the Pacific Northwest. So it’s only fitting that hardcore Olympia punks Strange Wilds signed to the Seattle label last year, and their debut LP for Sub Pop, Subjective Concepts, is coming this summer. First single “Pronoia” toggles between a coiled-snake groove and the kind of full scream-along ferocity that makes you want to thrash around in a small, dark room with a bunch of sweaty strangers. This is noisy, heavy, grimy music, and it’s great. Hear it for yourself below.

Here’s their latest press photo. See, no one’s too punk for ice cream.
