Alex Smoke Unveils New Wraetlic Album
'Ad Absurdum' LP lands April 5.
Wraetlic is one of Glasgow artist Alex Menzies’ three aliases. He’s most widely known as Alex Smoke, used for his regular abstract electronics, but he uses Wraetlic for doleful doom-pop and Alex Menzies for his forays into television and media, where he has scored documentaries for the BBC and various other outlets. He last appeared as Wraetlic in 2013 with an album and two EPs on Convex Industries.
Menzies himself last surfaced in 2018 with a collaborative Alex Smoke EP with cellist Maarten Vos and a contribution to XLR8Rplus.
A remix package will follow featuring a swarm of Huntleys & Palmers’ favourite producers of the moment.
Menzies will soon be touring an audio-visual performance as Wraetlic.
