The 6th release on the left_blank imprint, run by acclaimed producer Throwing Snow and cohorts, comes from 25 year old multi instrumentalist James Kelly, who until now has been best known as the sole permanent member and writer behind Irish black metal outfit Altar Of Plagues.
Under his WIFE moniker, James delivers an 5-track EP of Gothic 2-step beauty, using found sounds, homemade instruments and field recordings as a base. Pitchfork recently premiered the ritualistic video for lead track 'Bodies' (which has received 30000 views in little over a fortnight), also announcing that WIFE would release further material through Tri Angle Records (AlunaGeorge et al) in 2013.
With an uncompromising vision, and a remarkable live show in the works, WIFE is a truly unique talent
Radio support from Rob Da Bank, Mary Anne Hobbs, Jon Kennedy & Tom Ravenscroft.
