WASSAILER has shared a new video from their recent album.
‘Trad’ is the latest cut from debut full-length ‘I, the bastard’, which is out now via Empty Street Records.

“However, I’m obsessed with related harmonies and related rhythms, so it ended up being a fun mess. My niece Kaé was around when I recorded the vocals so it’s her shouting “aaah” at the end of the “let go”, and making all the noises. I suppose the fact that I can’t stand conservationism made sense lyrically and musically, though I tried to turn it into something light and positive…”
Check it out below, and catch WASSAILER live at Bermondsey Social Club on 30th June.
