Neu Pick: Members of WALL present Public Practice with the post-punk strut of ‘Foundation’

Members of WALL present Public Practice with the post-punk strut of ‘Foundation’

The band’s debut track - our Neu Pick for today - is taken from Wharf Cat Records’ new ACLU benefit compilation.

Every weekday, DIY’s new music know-it-all Neu brings you one essential new release to get obsessed with. Today’s Neu Pick comes from Public Practice.

Last year, NYC’s WALL became one of our favourite new bands through their tightly-wound post-punk. Sadly though, as they released their five star-rated debut album ‘Untitled’ last April, they called it a day.

Sam and Vince from the band are back with a new project though, and its first taster is our Neu Pick for today.

Public Practice’s debut track ‘Foundation’ largely takes off where ‘Untitled’ left, a track that veers between sharp, funky stabs of guitar and something altogether gnarlier. Sweet vocal harmonies turn to slow, deliberate howls of discontent at a moments’ notice; it’s impossible to take your eyes (or ears) off.

‘Foundation’ is taken from Wharf Cat Records’ new Record Store Day ACLU benefit compilation, out on 21st April and also featuring the likes of Dollar Band, The Men, Psychic Blood and Mail Thief.

Listen to ‘Foundation’ below.
