Following up on the release of the sublime Metamorphosis and the subsequent dearth of live opportunities, Ward XVI continue to push their work in other ways. They’ve just released the first of a quartet of acoustic numbers which you can play below.
One would think that shying away from electric formats would be welcome, so perhaps Stockholm syndrome set in with electroconvulsive therapy, bringing a kind of disturbing comfort! What is for sure is that this is nothing less than stunning. The pair may feel exposed and vulnerable, but what we’re left with once stripped down is raw and honest emotion, both lyrically and musically.
Taken from the upcoming Acoustic Session EP of four acoustic tracks, released each week in advent, a perfect addition to any library and gift set!
