The Coathangers have always been a band that played by their own set of rules. Never wavering, their debut album was raw and visceral while being a bit off the rails at times. While it’s been out of print for a good while, it’s coming back in December as a bonus edition. To make things more enticing, the band has released one of the bonus tracks “Wife Eyes” to remind you of how powerful the era was for their sound.
With the drums as the opening note, the mix of gutter drenched guitar sound and keys offer that raw sound. The vocals have a more in your face tone without frightening you away. There’s a magic in how the song plays out, simplistic in some ways while also organic and without pretension. It sounds like you’re there as the song plays out where the backing vocals are just as in your face.
The song can be heard above or on all streaming sites. The Coathangers debut album Deluxe Edition is available on multiple formats for preorder from Suicide Squeeze Records ahead of its December 04 release.
