PREMIERE - Beast & Flood's New Cassette Wellsonwell

Sydney trio Beast & Flood are on the cusp of releasing Wellsonwell, a two-track cassette showcasing the trio's burgeoning wellspring of angular muscularity, sinewy time signature shifts, shouty aggrandized epiphanies and thrashed-out zeal. A self-funded and constructed concern, the two tracks forgo the punchier immediacy of previous outings to underscore the band's propensity for off-kilter sonic exploration, taking well-worn post-punk paths before straying well off the beaten track. 'Flowers' somehow manages to be both sparse and high-strung, while the epic 'Cottonmouth' wraps up the intricacies of the band in one unfurling and overlapping sprawl (complete with mouse-pitch backing vocals).

Beast & Flood hit the road in December to flaunt Wellsonwell before knuckling down to record their debut album in 2015. Catch them:
