Reliably informed

Celebrating our 16th birthday, this year’s annual NARC. Compilation Album features an abundance of North East talent. Today, we check out the track from Waves of Dread. Download it for free via Bandcamp…

The listening experience on shoegaze rockers Waves of Dread’s track is intoxicating, with the regular drumming of Steven Gordon surging through the tidal instrumental flow and the molten vocals of Nick JH, mulled in a heavy reverb. It is playful and flirty too, as Nick claims: “it’s just a daft love song about drinking red wine on the beach at night.” The atmosphere of wine-drenched serenity is well captured, with the controlled, throbbing build and the strange sense of weighty motion beckoning the summer.
