Listen: The Wrens – “Crescent”

By ; August 18, 2010 at 12:21 AM 

One of our very favourite bands here at One Thirty BPM is The Wrens. Their album The Meadowlands was one of our favourites of the last decade and we have been waiting with baited breath for the follow-up.

It’s now been seven years.

Finally we have something new from this New Jersey band; a song called “Crescent.” Unfortunately it’s not clear whether this is a preview of a new album, but it is a new track and that’s good news. “Crescent” is to appear on a compilation called Dear New Orleans; a benefit album to mark the fifth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina.

Check out the song below.
