!!! (Chk Chk Chk), the iconic New York City dance-punk outfit, have returned with the exuberant new album, Wallop. This is the band’s eighth LP, another stellar addition to the wildly impressive catalogue they’ve built over two decades together and stands as a testament to their hardworking approach and ceaseless desire to push things further. Standout tracks include the tropical guitars and breezy pop chorus of 'Serbia Drums'; the frenetic freakout of 'Couldn't Have Known' that culminates in a breezy, dreamy conclusion; and 'Domino', a music box shuffle peppered with minuscule mallets and one mesmerising vocal sample – “Domino – D – D – Domino” – running throughout.
Wallop picks up where 2017’s Shake The Shudder left off, further exploring the fringes of dance music with a focused edge, a care-free spirit, and their signature knack for big hooks, leading to new creative highs in a career filled with them.
