Wall are a NY-based group that started off with bassist Elizabeth Skadden teaming up with her childhood friend and vocalist Sam York, and then with drummer Vanessa Gomez and guitarist Vince McClelland.
Their debut single “Cuban Cigars” was just an instant hit. A good damn post-punk song and with a bit of garage rock. Early this year the quartet put out their self-titled debut EP, via Wharf Cat Records, which was produced and recorded by Parquet Courts’ Austin Brown, in the concrete room they used to use as a practice space.
