Wild Moth are a young, talented post-punk band. On "Mirror," layers of sludgey, darkly textured guitars sit and slide on top of each other, jerking with energy and pulling the listener along a strong melodic underpinning. Think modern shoegaze that mixes spikes of punk-infused energy, like ñIsn't Anythingî-era My Bloody Valentine meets Drive Like Jehu. ñMirrorî and ñInhibitorî were recorded with Oakland producer Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Whirr) at Atomic Garden Studios and at Secret Bathroom Studios with Max Senna (Miserable). SF Weekly called the band ñone of the Bay Area's most promising young post-punk bandsî and described their sound as departing ñfrom punk's insistent rhythms and concise fury: It's more nuanced, structurally intricate, and melodic.î Wild Moth recently released a split with fellow Nor-Cal post-punks Creative Adult, which followed their well-received debut LP ñOver, Againî on Asian Man Records.
