MEMORIALS (Electrelane / Wire) sign to Fire Records, share “Acceptable Experience”

MEMORIALS, the duo of Verity Susman (Electrelane) and Matthew Simms (Wire, It Hugs Back), have signed to Fire Records and are working on their first album for the label. While no official word on the new album has been revealed, they have shared their first single for Fire, a baroque-psyche burner titled “Acceptable Experience” that falls somewhere between Broadcast and The Doors. Watch the video for that below.

Susman and Simms will be taking MEMORIALS out for a few UK live shows this summer, playing as a duo while “juggling instruments in a set-up resembling that of a 5-piece band and live looping on a reel-to-reel tape machine.” Sounds cool, check out those dates below.

MEMORIALS’ Music for Film: Women Against the Bomb + Tramps! made our Indie Basement Best Albums of 2023 list.
