The Wilful Boys – “Anybody There” (Stereogum Premiere)
Australian-born, New York-based noise-punks the Wilful Boys are linking up with Ever/Never records for their debut 7″ this winter. Today they’re sharing the A-side, “Anybody There.” It’s a fucking ferocious piece of work, one of those songs that feels and sounds like violence. The drums and guitars hit like shards of glass fired from a shotgun, and the feral howls leading the charge seem to be flowing from some deep, dark turmoil. “Is anybody there?” they cry, as if projecting danger in the face of fear. Let it thrash at you below.
“Anybody There” b/w “Flat Out” is out in January on Ever/Never.
