Birmingham-based shoegaze-y three-piece, WRAY, release the psychedelic and dream-like video for track “Relative” off their self-titled debut album, out July 15th on Communicating Vessels. The band premiered the video for the song today. Wray will be performing in New York City as part of their CMJ showcase on Wednesday, October 22nd at the Lit Lounge.
The band draws most of its inspiration from, “Dreamlike frequencies, sonic colors, ritualism, stagnation, repetition, movement and cohesiveness.” It was recorded in their hometown of Birmingham, Alabama at Ol Elgante Studio. With mastermind engineer Daniel Farris (Man Or Astro-man?, St. Vincent, Polyphonic Spree, Verbena) at the helm.
Wray is David Brown, Blake Wimberly, and David Swatzell. Though they are new, their involvement in the music community starts over a decade ago with such bands as Last Flight In, Comrade, Nightmare Waterfall.
