South London alternative rockers Wallflower are certainly living on cloud nine right now, the five-piece have been making waves across the UK, playing festivals including Download, and they are just about to embark on a tour with Milk Teeth. Having had some major attention since releasing two singles last year; ‘Mas Eu Quero Mais’ and ‘Sleep Forever’, the huge anticipation lies with the follow-up EP to 2014’s Summer Daze, Where it all fell apart which is due for release in August.
Have no fear though, as Wallflower have just dropped the phenomenal ‘Splintered’ to sate your appetite until then, and it’s obvious that the boys have been working their arses off to drop one of the hottest releases of the summer.
It’s evident from the opening, which consists of an eerie guitar, a beating drum, and haunting vocals, as well as an equally haunting video, that you are in for one hell of a ride. As soon as the chorus hits you are already sold; the thrashing of the guitars, the smashing of the drums and the astounding talent of the vocalist lead to ‘Splintered’ possibly being one of the biggest tracks of 2017. It is a heavy wave of intense raw talent which leaves the listener feeling strangely euphoric and proves that Wallflower are one of the leading bands to watch in 2017.
