Annie Hart’s Weight Of A Wave is an unfussy collection of post-punk, synth pop songs that hints at being a jaggedly dissonant indie nod to 90’s giants like Throwing Muses or Belly, but retains a largely sanitised lightness of touch.

The album’s lyrics examine the paucity of depth displayed in the predominately specious surface tension of social media affectations and plaudits, as in Stop Staring At You; or the dearth of things that dent darkened emotions in Nothing Makes Me Happy Anymore. Annie Hart set challenges when in the studio to come up with at least three songs per session, and these ten tightly wound tunes are the result; one for those who like their indie pop sweetly sung but with a soft and shadowy outlook.
