Shannon Wright | Mire

February 7, 2013 at 2:43 am Leave a comment

I heard this track, “Mire”, from Shannon Wright, and at first I thought it was a Scout Niblett song I hadn’t heard yet. Maybe it’s just that it seems we’re limited when it comes to women thrashing out on guitar — like PJ Harvey or Marnie Stern. This track got me to say aloud to myself, “Amen”, in that Philip Seymour Hoffman as Lester Bangs kinda way. “Mire” begins with a bit of distortion or light tremolo, before the ominous drums and savage guitar begin. Wright’s vocals are perfectly dusk and huskily shadowed. A curious combination of grit and grace. The song ends in a fireworks display of rhythm and noise. It’s a wonderful closing chaos. The song is a single on her forthcoming March 18th release, “In Film Sound”, out via Vicious Circle. You can follow Wright at her facebook page. — David D. Robbins Jr.
