It’s crazy to think that the world collectively lost an entire year to the still ongoing but now somewhat controlled pandemic. It’s a year we can’t get back, but The Wave Pictures have perhaps gone some way to supplementing what we missed with their new album, When The Purple Emperor Spreads His Wings.

With four sides each representing a new season, the eclectic rock band transports us through a trip around the sun and everything it entails. With each season releasing over the past year to coincide with the turning of the planet, Spring was welcomed in with Never Let You Down, a song out of time which sees psychedelic guitars blend seamlessly with uplifting affirmation – be comforted by the sense of security one feels seeing the first buds turn to blooms. May sees the culmination of The Wave Pictures’ efforts with the unified playlist finally complete and unleashed on the world. In celebration, Sunday 22nd May also sees The Wave Pictures perform at Newcastle’s Cluny in honour of this musical feat. It’s not too late to make up for lost time, and The Wave Pictures are here to oblige.

Support comes from Fortitude Valley, an indie rock/power pop band based in Durham and London and featuring musicians from such musical titans as Tigercats, Martha, ONSIND and Night Flowers.

The Wave Pictures and Fortitude Valley play The Cluny, Newcastle on Sunday 22nd May.
