As first impressions go, the debut track from Wall is a blooming stormer. Check it out below.

Lifted from the band’s self-titled debut EP, due out January 2016 via Wharf Cat Records, ‘Cuban Cigars’ is a sleek, smart first contact from the New York City based band. With a rhythmic attention-grabbing swell under the closed-eyed snarl of the lyrical point, ‘Cuban Cigars’ sees Wall stomp into focus. Arched backs and twisted grins, Wall swim in confidence and clout.
Speaking to Noisey, the band explain “‘Cuban Cigars’ was recorded in a concrete box in the dead of winter and inspired by the boxes in Manhattan where rich men go to smoke cigars and wash their money. Filtering The B-52’s through minimal composition, WALL created this song based on patterns rather than melody.”
The band have a couple of US shows lined up but until then, why not give ‘Cuban Cigars’ another spin.
