Wire are sharing new track ‘Internal Exile’ from their upcoming mini-album ‘Nocturnal Koreans’, which is due April 29th via pinkflag.

The synthetic, waltzing gait of ‘Internal Exile’ channels the spirit of underappreciated ’80s Wire but relocates it in a broader organic landscape, intriguingly fleshed out with Matthew Simms’s lap-steel guitar and, for the first time in Wire’s history, trumpet. Here, the band looks backwards and forwards simultaneously, all the while managing to avoid joining “the queue of future has-beens” mentioned in Graham Lewis’s lyric.
