Subterfuge are back with their first new recordings since 2007. Their second return single „The Snake Wife“ shows another side of the band’s broad musical range. The unconcern of „Stephanie Said“ has made way for a restlessness of this dissatisfied song with a dark finish. Of course this all still takes place within the boundaries of indie pop, so that you can still enjoy your vocal harmonies and jangly guitars. More singles will follow shortly and a new album is going to be released in early 2022.

Press Release (download below):

Formed in 1991 SUBTERFUGE are one of a handful German first generation Indiepop groups that are still around. Between 1993 and 2005 the band recorded four studio albums. Other priorities in life and solo projects came into the way of any joint activities, while time passed and Daniel, Kai, Lars, Lorenz, Tom and Tommy stayed closest friends. Around 2 years ago the group came back together in their original line up to work on new material.

After their return single Stephanie Said here is the second release The Snake Wife. Still jangle pop at its best while this time around showing the darker and more upbeat side of the band, indicating the variety of musical styles the upcoming album Dots (Release in early 2022) will have to offer.

The price you pay is the slow decay. A silence that keeps the dogs at bay

THE SNAKE WIFE is out Sep 3rd on Less Records, distributed by Cargo Records.
