Wampire – “The Hearse”

After forming Wampire, Rocky Tinder and Eric Phipps steadily began to make a name for themselves in the same Portland, OR, scene that has produced labelmates STRFKR as well as Unknown Mortal Orchestra. It makes sense, then, that Wampire came to Polyvinyl’s attention when the duo opened for STRFKR at a hometown Portland show and that UMO’s bassist Jacob Portrait produced Wampire’s debut full-length, Curiosity out in May of this year.

This lo-fi, shoegaze rock song has us very excited for what Curiosity will bring. Wampire’s first single “The Hearse” sounds to be very promising and we can tell that this isn’t your ordinary band that started out doing remixes and quickly turned into full-on producers/lyricists/musicians.
