Impure Wilhelmina’s “We Need A New Sun” is a brooding, introspective winner

The coolest video we have to show you today by far comes from Switzerland’s dark post-hardcore melodic heroes Impure Wilhelmina. The song is called “We Need A New Sun” and the video, while more or less a performance clip, is well shot, vibey and strong.

Wow, all I can say is that this song really hits the mark and pulls you in. It has a lot going for it, a soft and almost classical vibe in places that will appeal to fans of Metallica and Daylight Dies more somber moments as well as a punishing blackened post-metal sort of crispified Cult Of Luna onslaught at the 3:17 mark.

I don’t know why I put off checking out their Radiation album but I am def going to change that immediately. At almost 7 minutes you would think this song could turn into a snoozer but I have listened to it three times in a row and it has a sad, expansive comfort to it that should not be slept on by fans of great rock. Congrats to the band on a killer job!
