OUT NOW: WOMB RELEASE ‘HOLDING A FLAME’ EP

News

The news is written by a mysterious person. Maybe Wendy Broccoli.


Holding a Flame is a collection of songs written by the Pōneke-based trio, Womb, over the last couple of years. Originally anticipated to be a part of an album, the songs felt complete when placed together, as something of their own. “We recorded them on and off, while collectively listening to a whole lot of Cocteau Twins (as always), Blood Orange, and The Cure. As with most of our songs, these were written as a form of transmutation; turning discordant feelings into a unified sound as a means of getting through/past various states of being.”
 
Holding a Flame was recorded and produced by both the band and Bevan Smith, with Smith also taking on the mixing and mastering duties. The beautiful artwork and design is courtesy of the band’s synth whiz Haz Forrester. 


Womb have also recently announced the New Zealand tour in support of this release, visiting main centres across the country; 
 
2nd July — Dunedin (Ōtepoti) @ DIVE w/ i.e. crazy + Dale Kerrigan
3rd July — Lyttelton (Ōhinehau) @ Loons w/ Ben Woods + Ferby
21st July — Wellington (Pōneke) @ Meow w/ i.e. crazy, Recitals + bornhag
23rd July — Auckland (Tāmaki Makaurau) @ Wine Cellar w/ Samara Alofa + Ary & The Jansens
