Berlin’s WICHSWUT returns to the fray with an imminent new EP called WXWT. The boys from Kreuzberg give us a taste of what’s to come with the dark alt-pop of All My Friends Are Alcoholics. Check out the video below.

All My Friends Are Alcoholics is a frenetic take on post-punk, surf rock, garage poise, and lashings of Berlin froideur. The vocals feel like the eye of a storm, or a modern Isherwood, calmly chronicling tales of everyday life as the arrangement and melody proceed in a suitably dark and decadent manner.

All My Friends Are Alcoholics, and the accompanying track on the single Freak Eye can be streamed and downloaded on Bandcamp. More information on other listening options can be found here. For news about the band, their music, and their WXWT EP, check out the band’s Facebook page.
