[Download] Wazu - "Murder 1"

Fans of Depeche Mode, Duran Duran, Talking Heads, and David Bowie will want to have a listen and grab "Murder 1" from Australian-born, now NYC-based duo Wazu. The track combines elements of glam, grunge, electronic, pop and goth to create a dark, danceable atmosphere and comes from their upcoming self-titled EP, which drops on January 10th, courtesy of Anti-Language Recordings.

Wazu is comprised of Matt and Rizz, who wrote and performed together in several influential Syndey bands (Open The Gates, Captains) before they decided to venture out on their own as a duo and see what kind of chemistry the two had together. The band's self-titled EP was produced by Kevin McMahon (Titus Andronicus, Real Estate, Swans, The Walkmen), who also worked on their upcoming full-length album which is slated for a May 29, 2012 release.

NYers can catch Wazu at Cameo Gallery in Brooklyn on the night of the release of their EP (1/10/2012).
