‘Compromised Host’ is a tumultuous cacophony of biting guitars, driving bass and abrasive vocals. The single will be accompanied by a music video loosely inspired by the sinister host-making basements of HBO’s Westworld. The track will be available to stream and download on all major digital platforms.

The Leeds based slacker rockers burst into life in 2016, born from the member’s shared enthusiasm of relentlessly fuzzed-out guitar riffs juxtaposed with melancholic ambiences and catchy hooks, and spent that year playing shows around the country and were the headline band at Indie Week Festival in Toronto, where they released their first single ‘Atomis’.

The following year saw the four-piece play some memorable shows at Live at Leeds and Liverpool Sound City as well as releasing their follow up single ‘DD’, followed by ‘Bozo Material‘, a 3-track EP full of catchy hooks, spacey atmospheres and fuzzy goodness. Recorded by Matt Peel at The Nave and mixed by Al Groves (Bring Me The Horizon) at The Motor Museum Liverpool.

They are tipped as ‘ones to watch’ by Alan Raw of BBC Music Introducing, who’s stage they will appear on this August, at Leeds Festival, as well as their slot on the BBC stage at Reading.

Wuzi have shared stages with bands making waves around the country such as Strange Bones, Fangclub, The Moonlandingz, Fizzy Blood, Otherkin and Table Scraps.
