With a sound unlike anything you’ve ever heard before, “Replicant”, the new Wires Under Tension project is light years further whatever you thought sounded anywhere close to this. So imagine if you could the soundtrack to the most anticipated summer movie blockbuster of 3015 that also has a visually stunning video game to follow in the fall that had everyone in a frenzy. But even that doesn’t accurately describe what duo of Christopher Tignor and Theo Metz created.
Tantalizing to the senses while quantum leaping listeners to the day after next millenium, the body of work that is “Replicant” is inspired by Philip K Dick’s Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? and its filmic adaption, Blade Runner. Challenges what music is and the potential of what imusic can become, this 7-track EP not only places itself outside of expectation but pleasantly stations its tunes the minds of newly acquired fans.
And for that Replicant receives praise beyond that of value.
About Wires Under Tension
Wires.Under.Tension is a duo based in The South Bronx. Combining homegrown audio sampling instruments with ferocious beats and adventurous orchestration, WUT’s angular gymnastics reflect the raw imagery of their home turf. Multi-instrumentalist Christopher Tignor switches dexterously between violin and the rest of the arsenal while Theo Metz extracts brutal truths from the kit. Together WUT is rethinking what instrumental music can be about when musicianship and restless experimentation rule the scene.
