Vulgarians have shared their new single ‘Of Humdrum Consumption’, and it’s another sharply produced offering that vividly showcases the Hull band’s ability to write abrasive, brooding, psych-spiked tracks. The song is taken from their upcoming EP Almost-Instinct, Almost True, which is due to be released on May 5th.
Speaking about ‘Of Humdrum Consumption’ frontman Ryan Wilson-Preen says: “In many ways the song sounds more typical of an earlier Vulgarians’ track in regard to the discordant feedback, but shows an indication that we’ve moved forward and can write something more. We’ve finally allowed our Krautrock fascination to be absorbed into a new, vulgar life.”
Produced by MJ of Hookworms (TRAAMS, Eagulls, Pulled Apart By Horses), Vulgarians’ new EP is going to be a necessary listen for fans of The Wytches, Baby In Vain, and Weirds. If you’re a fan of revered Hull poet Philip Larkin, you’re also in luck – the EP is named after one of his works. The band are set to embark on a UK headline tour this May (dates below), so make sure you head down to one of their shows.
