Writ On Water’s “Dead Give Away”

As I mentioned in an earlier post, it’s been over seven years since we’ve heard anything new from Writ On Water. But listening to “Dead Give Away,” a new track that was just uploaded to the band’s MySpace page, it’s like those years never happened; it’s 2000 all over again, and in a good way.

“Dead Give Away” has everything you might want from a Writ On Water track: lush, 4AD-esque atmospherics, breathy vocals, sad and wintry melodies, etc. All in all, not a bad teaser for A Wingless King, the band’s new full-length, which will be released next month, and will set off a flurry of Writ On Water-related activity throughout the remainder of 2008.
