Texas band The Well have released “Sabbah,” the opening track of their forthcoming album, Death and Consolation.
There’s much to love about “Sabbah,” what with its tasty, psych-indebted grooves and love of the dramatic: A backing chorus heralds the song’s end, which arrives in the form of a fuzzy breakdown with indecipherable whispered vocals. All this is sandpapered over with gritty production that makes the song feel more tactile and alive.
Death and Consolation is out April 26 on RidingEasy Records. Listen to “Sabbah” below:
