The Wagner Logic – “Black Cloud”


The lush guitar lines and whisper-y, dreamy shoegaze-leaning vocals within The Wagner’s Logic aesthetic hearkens visions of a beautifully snowy atmosphere, which is appropriate considering the project’s Kasilof, Alaska origin. With their tracks self-produced in the dark basement of a small cabin located in this quiet fishing town, the group – formed in 2000 initially as a project between childhood friends James Glaves and Jeremy Wagner – projects a hauntingly intimate sound on new track “Black Cloud”, one of seven tracks on their new album Heart is Dark, streaming in full below. Gentle, reverbed vocals work alongside crawling guitars for an immersive, winter-set sound.
