New Wang Wen song/album2018-08-09 by insomniac15 STAFF | 1 Comments
|Chinese post rock act, Wang Wen will release their 8th studio album, Invisible City this fall through Pelagic Records. Recorded in Iceland in January this year, the LP will be out on September 28. |
The band revealed 'Mail from the River', the first song off Invisible City. It can be listened to below:
Regarding the track, Wang Wen mentioned: "There’s a small river running outside the recording studio, Sundlaungin, in Iceland. With the snow pack melting and pouring into the river, we could hear the stream gurgling even inside the room if we opened the control room’s door which is nearer to the balcony when we took a break from recording. During the days when we recorded our album, it was the coldest time in Iceland. Maybe because of its special geothermal resources, that small river didn’t freeze. When we looked at it from afar, it seemed to be enveloped in a shroud of water vapor. It’s been half a year now since we finished the recording. I can’t remember other natural features outside the studio, but that small river impressed itself deep on my mind. There was nothing else other than white snow on its blanks…”
Band member Xiu Yugang also commented on the meaning of the record's title: “Over the last two years, lots of young people I know have left Dalian to a more dynamic city to live and work. Dalian remains more and more silent and vague. One day, I thought of the book of Calvino suddenly, Invisble Cities, which I never finished. I turned over the first several chapters and saw my notes in pencil. It read, “Each city receives its form from the desert it opposes; and so the camel driver and the sailor see Despina, a border city between two deserts.” That comes the name of this album: Invisible City. Yet I haven’t finished this book.”
