Wendy James has finally returned with what is the best work of her career.
If Transvision Vamp were pristine pop punk and Racine a dark trip hop trip the current Wendy is classic New York new wave scuzz- a place were flick-knife words and the steaming sex of the city combine with dangerous and thrilling rock n roll. The new songs have the dark poetic sunglasses cool of Patti Smith and Wendy has never sound in better voice as she delivers the brilliant lyrics perfectly with a wounded intimacy and directness that really suits her singing. Each track comes with its own back story which is detailed on Wendy’s soundcloud…
The album is slated for release for 2015 and these tracks are a hint of it’s classic status.
The band is killer as well with Wendy not only laying down those great vocals but rhythm guitar and keyboards, the legendary Lenny Kaye on lead guitar, Glen Matlock on bass and James Sclavunos taking break from Nick Cave on drums.
