Wooden Shjip’s new album, West, represents an exploration of a vast and, for them, unexplored continent and all of the mythology, romanticism, and idealism that it embodies.
The steady driving rhythms are overlaid by thick and distorted guitar lines, both melodic and boundless. Where they may lead cannot be anticipated but following them is exhilarating.
ThinkSync have placed a track on a current ITV sponsorship ident. Rosie Doonan’s ‘The Girl I Used To Be’ is used in a bumper ident for prime-time show Countrywise, which airs on Monday nights and will run for 8 episodes.
