THE ARTIST: Melbourne’s new wave, no-wave throwbacks who point their hips/lips forward.


Stories EP set to drop on September 25 via Liberation.

THE DEAL: WEP have been toiling away, working on the follow-up to the lauded, pitchperfe­ct pop adventures of their self-titled debut album. The Crystal Waters meets Simply Red track Tall Stories dropped this week and lit up the blogospher­e. Premiering on revered tastemaker­s site The 405, they wrote “Like their contempora­ries The Presets and Cut Copy, Melbourne band World’s End Press make disco-tinged, energetic dance music bursting with dizzy energy.” Athens’ site

Last Gas Station says it “delivers an addictive slice of dance pop with ridiculous­ly catchy melodies. It’ll be rattling around your head for days.” Pilerats noted WEP have “returned to a vibe similar to their popular debut album. Tall Stories is a dynamic twist on their original sound, with frontman John Parkinson’s vocals breezing over a house-infused dance beat” and added “Tall Stories is the first single by World’s End Press under their new agency UNDR CNTRL.” Acid Stag quipped

‘Stories is “a super fun, energetic tune that is said to be the first taste of a larger announceme­nt that will be made next week — wonder what that could possibly be …?” Why, that’d be a national tour. They’ll play Wooly Mammoth on Oct 10 and then prepare more Second Day

Uptown funk for Michael Gudinski’s Liberation stable.
