Dorey The Wise are a difficult band to pin down stylistically at times playing a mixture of heartfelt ballads at other times an effervescent brand of exuberant indie. But on their latest track ‘Tidal Wave’ they produce something rather more sombre and twisted. It starts off as an interesting slice of Foals-esque math rock but then rears up as livid guitars and snarling vocals explode like hand grenades. It’s from the Hastings based four piece’s latest EP ‘Rise And Fall’ and perhaps marks the start of the band taking a darker musical route?
