Previously released on cassette via Astral Noize Records, now available on CD as a precursor to Wren's upcoming 2nd full-length LP in early 2020.
Wren are a 4 piece noise-rock/sludge band based in London, who have released a series of recordings on Holy Roar Records, including their 2017 LP 'Auburn Rule', a split with label-mates Slabdragger, and most recently, a 20 minute long, single-track EP entitled ‘Thrall’. The band has recorded their second LP with Scott Evans of Kowloon Walled City, due for release in 2020. Alongside appearing at notable festivals including Damnation, Raw Power, Mammothfest and ArcTanGent, Wren have shared the stage with the likes of Kowloon Walled City, Fórn, Conan, Unsane, Moloch, Death Engine, and Minsk.
Following the ‘Auburn Rule’ LP, Wren shifted gears towards a more absolute framework, crafting a singular track that stretches to almost 20 minutes, taking form as an EP entitled ‘Thrall’ - a newly measured exploration of the unit's more recent sonic meditations, functioning within a triptych composition.
'Thrall' explores the ebb and flow of the bands sound, radiating in diverse gradients between drone-based omens and astringent, inharmonious collisions.
CD is housed in a recycled card sleeve, hand-printed by Death Rattle Press
