For the uninitiated, the titled “Dwellers of the Deep” by Wobbler may invoke the ideas of heavy metal or doom, but that would be far from the truth. For fans of the 70’s progressive rock era Wobbler weave a lush web which dwells on the organic textures of classic prog, drenched in swirls of organs, stabbing bass lines and mythological lyrics. Their skillful musicianship, with compositions that take on a stunning degree of craftsmanship, have been built on melodies that go beyond the walls of the pop side of prog. Thematically “Dwellers of the Deep” revolves around feelings and something breaking out, which is a rather perfect subject matter for isolated times during 2020 when it was released. The material is offered through two lengthy tracks bookending the album and two shorter pieces in the middle, so get on your prog and tune into Wobbler.
Released on October 30, 2020.
