Premiere Streaming: WHIMM “A Stare Ajar”

Michael Raymond Clark

Dark rock trio WHIMM have a record in the works, A Stare Ajar, that will be released on Pleasence Records on October 27th. Today we are really happy to be able to share the title track off this release, an eerie, awesome song that shows how these guys perfectly pair 80s punk dissonance with an almost art rock aesthetic and the result is fucking rad. This is a stellar debut, and we’re really looking forward to the vinyl pressing – pre-order it here! Upcoming tour dates below…

08/19 – Toronto – Monarch Tavern w/ Pop. 1280, WLMRT
