Wargirl - Wargirl [Clouds Hill]

Following up to their "Arbolita" EP which made some distinct waves this summer we see Wargirl now coming up with a full self-titled album, once again released via the Hamburg-based imprint Clouds Hill which did quite a lot to push the band over the course of the past months. Opening with "Poison" and "Sass Girl" from the limited 7" whitelabel release we've already featured extensively in our 'baze.djunkiii Charts 10/2018' post in early October the band makes a great start followed by "Mess Around", a seductive swing piece for sexy moments on the dancefloor whereas the "Voice Of The Mountain" harks back to African uptempo rhythms and a great, uplifting lo-fi attitude slightly touched by 70s Psychedelia for those who know. With "No Difference" Wargirl stay in the same lane albeit adding a little bit of seductive Soul eroticism to the mix, "Streets" is a high class sing-a-long anthem infused by Reggae- / Dub-offbeats and defo a hit on each and every dancefloor and "How You Feel" caters to those loving smokey bars, hot nights out and having a dance to raw big time vintage Soul that's able to smash even the most distinct Northern Soul nights and prestigious venues to pieces within less than a rewind. "I Know I" harks back to the laid back Reggae-infused side of the bands musical work, "Make Believe" reveals unexpected dreamy romanticism brought to us with super soft pads and twangy guitars and the final cut "Last Time" brings on a brooding, fever'ish yet super seductive take on PostPunk and Jazz for an epic closing. Essential. Get.
