Wargirl - Arbolita [Clouds Hill]

Coming at us in late June, 2k18 with a new six track EP named "Arbolita" on the Hamburg-based Clouds Hill-label is Wargirl, the six piece band formed by and around California-producer Matt Wignall who has been working for and with acts like Cold War Kids amongst others. Influenced by a wide variety of musical genres the set up, consisting of Samantha Parks, Enya Preston, Tamara Raye, Jeff Suri and Erick Diego Nieto incorporates hard hitting P-Funk drums and raw Exotica as well as screaming guitar licks and female Funk vocals on the title track whilst bringing on excellent, offbeat-infused Space Disco in "Little Girl" before "Uptown Girl (Song For Domino)" goes deep down into dubbed out, laid back PostPunk / TripWave territories. With "People" we see Wargirl strive through the land of PostPunk, BigBeat and Psychedelia, riding hefty low ends and raw garage-y production values, "The Night Is On Our Side" employs Dub and Ska-elements on top of a tripping 4/4 Pop-savvy foundation for a well mixed smokers audience and the final cut "Don't Push Me Down" fully dubs out on a sweet, relaxed yet experimental level for all those loving Adrian Sherwood and his production efforts to the max. Great stuff!
