Portland duo Wampire are gearing up for their debut album, Curiosity, which will be out in May on Polyvinyl. It was produced by Unknown Mortal Orchestra bassist Jacob Portrait and the album's first single, "The Hearse," is out next week (2/22) and is streamable below. If you like UMO or SRFTKR, this will probably be up your alley. The single's b-side is a cover of Kraftwerk's "The Model."
