Woods – “I Was Gone”

At Echo Lake will be the fifth Woods full-length. This first sample from Echo Lake stays hypnotic without lulling, due to interplay between the song’s guitars: some flit in and out of the foreground, others stay workmanlike and straightforward. Singer Jeremy Earl keeps his voice high as ever, though his words are obscured in the drone. Their last one was called Songs of Shame, but this song has something a little Saucerful of Secrets about it (Hipgnosis could have designed them an amazing album cover).
