Exu__Wow was written, recorded and mixed by Deathpodal, in various locations across Scotland, and features a number of friends / musicians, including members of Copy Haho and PVH.
Bringing together post punk, DIY recording techniques, warm undulating melodies and a cacophony of instrumentation, the recording became something of an art project. Everyone involved played on the release for free and it was recorded in various locations including University of Glasgow, Princes Street Gardens and various flats in Edinburgh, a portacabin in Stonehaven and also on the streets of Prague.
This is a completely independent release, and by purchasing the EP through Bandcamp you're directly supporting the artist, Deathpodal - Alastair J. Chivers. Thanks!

"This EP is why I started writing reviews. A guitar, synths, strings, discordant percussion… lengthy explorations into sound and texture juxtaposed with coarse, lo-fi punk rock."
**** - Lenny Marx, Is This Music
"There are a couple of bursts of feral, lo-fi rock, reminiscent of the dissonant early nineties that give way to... quasi-musical weirdness. It's diverse and consistently well done..."
**** - Chris Cusack, The Skinny
"I just heard it floating around the office and it just sounded absolutely beautiful... if you find it a little hard going, that's down to you!"
Joe Lindsay, BBC Radio Ulster
"[Exu__Wow] is a whole piece of work, and one which lulls you in nicely before wrong-footing you with one of the most well-executed flourishes I’ve seen in a while."
Matthew Young, Song By Toad
"a magnificently constructed composition that's slow-burning and shadowy, punctuated by some jolting and angular guitar and strings and anguished-sounding vocals, not to mention screes of angry guitar noise... Anything but predictable, this is an exciting debut."
8/10 - Christopher Nosnibor, Whisperin and Hollerin
"[Exu_Wow] At turns very beautiful and beautifully scary!" -
