The English alt-rock band CWM were introduced last year and are currently working towards their forthcoming LP Mate? What!.
Their third song to be revealed – Homely Streets – finds CWM in a different corner of the room to their last feature.
The new song has a grungy undertow that smudges as it surfaces from the speakers with the dampened instrumentation laying at a juxtaposition to the snappy drumkit, which affords Homely Streets captivating layers of texture while the expressive vocal delivers an unanticipated melodic tint to the track.
CWM is a relatively new English dark-rock quartet.
Only a couple of songs are around, both of fairly dark outline though one, Icebreaker, is punchier than other, the more recent Raised As Wolves, which has a more nuanced texturing to it affording the quartet to shine as creative songwriters due to its multitudes of layers that float through the room as it casts an ethereal dreamy presence towards which the listener finds themselves vainly reaching out to embrace the curling echoes as they drift past.
It is difficult to comprehend CWM have only recently got together and on the basis of the two tracks, particularly, to my mind, the latter, will find many more people speaking at least one word of Welsh more than they knew in the past – though to be fair – having not asked about the intended pronunciation, perhaps each individual letter stands on its own.
