New York post-punkers WALL first caught our attentions back in 2015 with their debut single ‘Cuban Cigars,’ and catching them live in Bushwick a year on, it was clear that Sam York and co. were onto something ace. After a bit of a quiet patch, we were starting to miss ‘em dearly - so thank goodness they’ve returned with news of a debut!
‘Untitled’ is out on 29th April via Wharf Cat, with pre-orders open here. The tracklisting is as follows:
01 High Ratings
02 Shimmer Of Fact
03 Save Me
04 (Sacred) Circus
05 “Wounded At War
06 Everything In Between
07 Charmed Life (Half Japanese cover)
09 Turn Around
10 River Mansion
Along with the debut news, WALL have also shared a new taster, lead single ‘High Ratings’. A barbed, biting tirade directed at people-pleasers and approval-seekers, it’s a blistering first sample of things to come next.

‘Untitled’ could well’ve put the New Yorkers on the same trajectory as their equally absurdist contemporaries Parquet Courts.
The NYC punks release their first (and unfortunately last) full-length this Friday.
The record follows later this month.
It’s the second track to be lifted from the NYC band’s first and final LP.
