PRESS RELEASE

Zang is proud to announce the release of Waler’s first full length album, Formulas. After honing their work in a string of socially conscious dance/hip hop EPs, Waler have put together their Zang debut: an album of high-energy, idiosyncratic pop music. Vincent Gould and John Napier cut popular music to shreds and paste it back together into things crystallised - iconic upon first listening. Popular music boiled down to its basic elements. Popular culture stripped of every facade and pretence. It exists somewhere in the mind of the post modern, before it’s even been played.

Formulas: a tribute to early ‘90’s dance music, Italo-disco and 80’s new wave. Every loop, every guitar riff and every iconic chorus is loaded with irony and a grave suspicion of our inherited musical history, as well as fathomless love and nostalgia.

Formulas: hellfire on Western vanity and impotent selfishness… on the dehumanising consumer sexuality imposed on those with disposable income, and also on those without… on the formulaic drone of mass culture, its hamster wheels of desire, and it’s pacifying weight. Every phrase hits its mark:

“Billboards burning bright
Burn illusions in the night
We’re not what you want
You’ve got to let us move on”

Formulas: a fire-cracker of social awakening, a calling to critical consciousness. The spirit of revolution pervades every word and every note, as though Jesus got Karl Marx in touch with The KLF and KRS-One. A life affirming call to think, to listen, to speak and to dance. Music for the people, by the people, back where music belongs.

“Take your shackles off
Tell me what your frightened of
Beat your battle drum
Tell them we shall overcome”
