Wellington trio Womb are about to release their long awaited album Like Splitting the Head From the Body.
Recorded at The Wine Cellar, Auckland with Arcade Recordings' label head Rohan Evans the album was then mixed by Charlotte and Thomas Lambert (Sonorous Circle, i.ryoko). These eight tracks of delightful but at times dark shoegaze pop is a natural follow on from their exquisite 2015 debut. While over the last 3 years the band have played countless New Zealand shows, supported the likes of A Dead Forrest Index and performed at The Others Way Festival.
Album singles Here We Bend (To Smell The Dirt) and Feeling Like Helium, both display their knack of crafting understated cadences of hazy dream like songs.
Like Splitting the Head From The Body marks the tenth release on Auckland label Arcade Recordings will be released on flesh pink vinyl and cassette.
