Music | News | Wooden Arms Release Teaser Track ‘Burial’ From Upcoming Debut Album ‘Trick Of The Light’

By Kieran Webber

‘Burial’ is the first teaser track to be taken from UK quintet Wooden Arm’s forthcoming debut album ‘Trick of the Light’, planned for release late 2016.

‘Burial’ is indicative of Wooden Arm’s sound. Drawing from alternative, classical trip-hop music, the band blend the melancholy of The National, the layered string arrangements and gentle percussion of Tindersticks, the sparse soundscapes of Sigur Rós and the beats of Portishead, which together makes for a unique and diverse soundscape.

Inspired by an Edgar Allen Poe story ‘Burial’ lulls the listener into a somniferous somber lullaby in its first section, a peace which is broken by a pulsating trip-hop heart-beat bassline. ‘Burial’ continues to ramp up a sense of dread until finally it culminates in a furious, cacophonous clattering of sound.

‘Burial’ is officially released on 27 May via iTunes and Spotify. It can be streamed and shared via Soundcloud now:
