Wedlock – Reverend Charisma

Wedlock may not be known too terribly well outside of their home city of Chapel Hill, North Carolina, but their single “Reverend Charisma” may be the one track that breaks them big. The electropop movement is still on its way up, and the Depeche Mode meets drum n bass sound of Wedlock here has a very retro feel to it, tying together electropop with the “New Romantic” generation perfectly. The act is able to imbue the track with a tremendous amount of emotion, even as the vocals slink around in sultry way.

Wedlock is able to change up styles with a percussion-heavy breakdown, giving fans more than enough in the way of a kick in the pants to maintain their interest through the rest of the track. The linking together of electronic with rock music will ensure that a larger subset of people will find something that they like with “Reverend Charisma”. Check out the single, which is Available NOW on iTunes, and if it is something that you like, make it a point to purchase their 2008 release, “Exogamy” and see if they are coming to perform anywhere around your point of origin.
