Tom Wu + New Fries
21. Mai 2018, 22:00 - 08:58
Tom Wu shows should take place in basements – exclusively. Basement clubs, that you need to descend unto, like a submergence into the abysmal depths of our minds. There where there is no light, like a dive into the bleakest corners of our thoughts. Basement clubs with no light, except that of a stroboscope, which reveals images of people thwarted in ecstasy, all chopped up into snapshots. It is exactly this imagery that sums up the Munich-based drummer and singer best: A trip into the unconscious, like the blackest of black nights on (slightly too) hard drugs.
The new album „All You Want“ is out on May, 25th in a cooperation of CUT SURFACE & Echokammer Records.
„New Fries are a lot of things – maybe all the things. Their description of their music – “just the bones mostly, with a little meat” – makes sense, but it also makes sense when they say it’s “layers on top of layers.” The songs are dense and complex, a ratking of rhythm and tonality, with fearless jump-cut songwriting and opaque, allusive lyricism. But they’re also arresting and immediate, a rush of nervy energy made by four strong personalities bent on upending, provoking and making space for one another.“ – NOW
