Wombo (US) | Live at Control | 20.05

Tickets are now available via Eventbook.ro.
Hailing from Louisville, Kentucky, Wombo are Sydney Chadwick, Cameron Lowe and Joel Taylor.
Fairy Rust, the new album from Wombo, contemplates the spaces in-between, a meeting of the physicality of the land with the fluidity of the imagination, to uncanny effect. Across twelve tracks, sharpened guitar work, distorted freakouts and downtempo musings see the trio make a sonic leap forward into new and transformative places.
Conceived over the course of the last two years, the record is steeped in its own time warp of escapism and influenced by fairy tales like the Brothers Grimm and Hans Christian Anderson (“RVG” is short for “Rip Van Winkle”) that blend surreal situations with the mundane.
Wombo stress that the unknown is key to the ongoing journey of self-discovery. The future cannot be predicted, and ambiguity should be understood as a crucial part of life. According to Chadwick, “endings are always beyond my level of understanding or comprehending or knowing at all. I wanted to end the album with that kind of message, that the mysteries in life are not to be solved but experienced and respected, to be kept at a distance.”
With Fairy Rust the band present one moment of fragile time that reverberates throughout human experience.
