While their last LP was Total Magique in every sense, Montreal trio We Are Wolves up the ante by further exploring their fist-pumping mélange of garage, electro, post-punk and indie rock.
Opener Paloma is straight-up rock, and explodes with a fierce, scream-along chorus that's as catchy as it is aggressive, while Walking Commotion marries Joy Division's bass and drums with Pixies' snarling guitars to produce spooky, paranoid awesomeness.
On Reaching For The Sky, WAW hit the dance floor full-on, with clubby, arpeggiated synths leading the assault. No matter which of their sonic dimensions the band happens to be bolstering, the resulting blast is always creative, energetic and memorable. In short, they make you want to fight and dance at the same time.
