Irish artist gets intimate on the first taste of his debut album on Tri Angle Records.

April 10, 2014

The level of intimacy WIFE summons up on record is almost too close for comfort. "Bodies" from Stoic, his 2012 debut EP on UK label Left Bank, set a tone with its raw texture, rhythmic urgency and ritualistic video featuring the Irish artist tearing apart the flesh of a peach with his hands. He went on to sign to Tri Angle Records and "Heart is a Far Light" is the first taste of his debut album What's Between, due on June 9th and featuring co-production from The Haxon Cloak, lie and Roly Porter. A strummed guitar, a single drum and layers and layers of vocals, sung as if pressed close to your ear, ripple and curve in and around each other on “Heart is a Far Light” like reams of silk. It feels like a confession of sorts, which imbues the removal of headphones after listening so close with a sense of stepping back into the sunlight, blinking.
