Flip Your Wig

Classic Rock - - The Hard Stuff -

Re­leased just eight months af­ter New Day Ris­ing, Flip Your Wig saw Dü’s some­times wildly con­tra­dic­tory pal­ette set­tle down into ma­ture al­ter­na­tive rock – but with­out los­ing its bite and at­ti­tude.

Mem­o­rable sin­gle Makes No Sense At All won Dü a new au­di­ence. The ma­jes­tic Di­vide And Con­quer fea­tures so­ciopo­lit­i­cal ‘global vil­lage’ lyrics, spook­ily proph­esy­ing 21stcen­tury para­noia and di­vi­sive news feeds. The dark and earnest Games, with its ring­ing gui­tar mo­tif, ex­plores Mould’s fa­mil­iar in­tro­spec­tion. The im­mi­nent ma­jor-la­bel deal would be a mere for­mal­ity.
