out 5 March on Big Legal Mess/Fat Possum
“Fake Heat” is driven by great harmonies and minimalist composition. It’s a slow burner that has lyrical depth. Wyoming is the follow up to Water Liars’ debut, Phantom Limb, which was released last February. The duo from Oxford, MS admittedly “played a lot of shows” in support of Phantom Limb, but found the time to cut Wyoming late last year.
