Wire – “Cactused”

Wire are still going strong after all these years. While there have been some breaks in the band’s 43-year career, the British post-punk band are about to release their seventeenth album. That’s a pretty good ratio! The band has just announced a new album, Mind Hive, the follow-up to 2017’s Silver/Lead — it’s due out in January.

Today, the band are sharing its lead single, “Cactused,” a knotty bit of techno-anxious ramble. “You better what your step/ You shouldn’t place your bets/ You may have played your hand/ You didn’t gauge demand,” goes the chorus, backed by a smooth cooing.

Listen below.
