Released by Pinkflag
There will always be something tantalizing about the three-piece band that sparked a million basement musicians to play more feverishly. Responsible for memorable tracks such as “I Feel Mysterious” and the epic debut Pinkflag, many things have been said about post-punk pioneers Wire, but perhaps “balanced” is not a popular description. However, after a career spanning the decades, Wire understands how to pace an album to foster equilibrium. Red Barked Tree embraces the juxtaposition of rough and polished elements, which is a recognizable and indelible link to the band’s impressive discography.
