Darkwave outfit WEREWOLVES, BEWARE! take a dive down the rabbit hole of social media-spawned envy on “I Want Your Life,” the second track off of their new EP, Rey Drecker. Swarms of synths swell and surge through the opening silence, inundating the track with an electrifying energy. Haunting vocals, mainly comprised of frenzied shouts, intertwine with the track’s cosmic instrumental to form a menacing yet irresistible strain of dance-inducing electronica. Ultimately, with their eccentric disco-meets-grunge concoction, this Toronto/Calgary duo create a fiery track that captivates us with every listen.
“I Want Your Life” is now available along with the rest of Rey Drecker via Bandcamp.
The new Toronto/Calgary darkwave duo WEREWOLVES, BEWARE! recently dropped their debut EP 0NE, and their first single “That’s Fine” plays like a noisy, synth-heavy title theme to a b-horror, trash classic.
The catchy synthpop tune from duo Jamie Monteiro and Ava Markus opens with a steady 808 beat set to a pulsing bass and sleazy synth lead – then kicks in with a blurry vocal chant before the electric guitar blasts in and drives the song off into a hazy storm of analog synth swells, garage-heavy production, and gentle teases of vocoder and synth arpeggios – which make the track require repeated listens.
We’re excited to see more from this new duo! Grab a copy of EP 0NE from their Bandcamp.
