CWM – Raised As Wolves – Single Review

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.

Slang – Nonsuch – Video

Sometimes life needs some drama and the theatrical-rock creator Slang from Canada is ideal for such moments.

From the LP Icebreaker the ninth of the dozen tracks – a song which minds me of  the track The Eve Of The War on the 1978 release of the musical of War Of The Worlds composed by Jeff WayneNonsuch.


Ice Breaker – Slang is available on iTunes.*
