Dire Wolves are a self-regenerating phenomenon.
A perpetually evolving psychedelic unit, more than 20 individuals have passed through their gates, with the experience leaving its mark on each one of them.
The San Francisco cult heroes have buddied up with Beyond Beyond Is Beyond for a new album project, with 'Excursions To Cloudland' set to land next month.
Clash is able to bring you a preview, but it's not to be taken lightly. An aural experience, 'Fogged Out (Two)' shatters the barriers on what could be called a 'song', replacing them with conduits, with ripplets of sound.
Video artist Caitlin Denny assists on visuals, with the whole thing blurring into an immersive, meditative experience.
Guitarist Jeffrey Alexander:
"I first worked with Caitlin Denny for a video performance of hers at a museum in San Francisco several years ago. Her work with live visual feedback is captivating and immersive. I'm drawn to the beautiful abstraction but still with little touches of familiar images – such a nice balance. Especially when the images are dancing slowly while the colours are freaking out fast, it fits with the glacial pace of our music even though individual instruments are frenetic. Our goal musically is to get lost in the sound, to explore other cloudlands and Caitlin's visual work compliments that quite well."
Tune in now.
'Excursions To Cloudland' is due to be released on March 24th.
