On Dead Waves - On Dead Waves LP
Heavy of atmosphere, rich in melody, rippled with an air of malice and flowing female and male vocals, onDeadWaves' debut album will be released on Mute in spring 2016.
onDeadWaves, who release their debut album this spring on Mute, explain "Blue Inside is essentially about a loss – it's that moment when you finally come out of the numbness and realise you can actually feel something. The song has a positive message though. It is about moving on, and continuing on the journey."
You haven't heard them like this before, but you may already know the band. One is James Chapman, better known as Maps, whose critically acclaimed debut We Can Create was nominated for the Mercury Music Prize, and whose latest album Vicissitude, came out on Mute. The other is Polly Scattergood, the electrically charged artist who has released two solo albums on Mute.
