Introducing: Wampire

The latest signings to Illinois indie mainstay Polyvinyl Records, Oregon two-piece Wampire produce retro-centric, organ-laden psych rock. Don’t let that description fool you though, Wampire put their campier tendencies through a garage-punk blender; one that they clearly forgot to put the lid back on. The result? A splattered mess of Ariel Pink-esque fuzz glam, driving kraut-infused beats and an endearingly goofy sense of humour.

Ahead of their debut full-length Curiosity, which drops later this year, the duo are releasing album track ‘The Hearse‘ as a 7″ single, via Polyvinyl, next week. As the b-side, they’ve recorded a chugging, hazy cover of Kraftwerk’s ‘The Model‘, which feels perfectly in keeping with the Wampire aesthetic. You can stream ‘The Hearse’, below:
