These Waves are a new band from Derby, UK with a bright, melodic, and complex post-punk style. Their songs are catchy and filled with shout along gang vocals, muscular guitar lines, and danceable rhythms that range from nimble to pummeling within a moments notice. The band just released a brand new self-titled EP that you can stream and download FOR FREE via their BandCamp page HERE!!
Check out a review of the EP from one of our favorite UK based websites RoomThirteen.com...
"Million Dead and Yourcodenameis:milo come to mind on 'Consolation Prize', must be those fuzzy riffs and complex rhythms, but often the guitars on this EP from These Waves are more mathy and jagged than both those bands. Their tunes are slightly off kilter but always seem to be melodic, with really nice vocals and they bring everything together well with never an awkward moment; they make it all sound easy. 'These Questions Need No Answers' flits around, pulling those complex drums, staccato guitars and lovely rich riffs together with a memorable melody and 'Waiting Game' is even better; what a great tune, so catchy and the variety of styles from the guitar is fantastic. A talented bunch this lot, check out their free download on bandcamp to listen to these cracking tunes."
