Listen To Spencer Robinson & The Wolf Spiders’ New Single: ‘Poisonous Berry’/‘Seeing You in the Dark’

Los Angeles garage rock band Spencer Robinson and the Wolf Spiders have released a new single a few days ago, two very different songs that you can stream below (or on your favorite streaming platform). ‘Poisonous Berry’ is in the vein of their previous material, a propulsive gallop of a song, but also a very cinematic one, which almost sounds like a psychedelic spaghetti western whipped by Spencer Robinson’s dark and ultra passionate vocals. Spencer himself told me that the song was ‘about doing something that you know you shouldn’t do…and then becoming obsessed with it’… He actually sounds like the bad guy who has just committed a robbery and flees at the speed of light while looking over his shoulder.

The second track ‘Seeing You in the Dark’ is a muddy one, all imbued with a very psychedelic aura, which sort of reminds me about something from the Brian Jonestown Massacre. After its first sludgy-metal seconds, the song moves very slowly, as if it were paralyzed by heat at high sun… Spencer told me that the song was ‘about meeting somebody for sex in secret, and how lonely it feels when they leave’…. And this certainly puts a new spin on the tune.

Spencer Robinson used to play in the famous LA garage rock band The Lords of Altamont, and his present band The Wolfe Spiders includes founding member of The Lords of Altamont Johnny DeVilla on guitar, Tom Hernandez from The Superbees on drums, and Piper Ingram from The Honeymoon Screams and Kissy Suzuki on bass. All the lyrics of the songs were written by Spencer whereas the music is a collaboration between himself and DeVilla.

I have seen The Wolfe Spiders a few times live, and they always put on a dynamic show, filed with all the nuances of their dark universe

Their new single ‘Poisonous Berry’/‘Seeing You in the Dark’is out on Komakino Records
