The Ninth Wave Announce Debut LP 'Infancy', Stream "Used To Be Yours"

Glasgow noise pop/post-punk quartet The Ninth Wave have announced the release of their new album titled 'Infancy'.

The 12-track record will be released in two parts in 2019: Part I on April 26 and Part II on November 15, and feature their new song "Used To Be Yours"and the recent tracks "Half Pure" and "Sometimes The Silence Is Sweeter".

A brief glimpse into The Ninth Wave’s disruptive, convention-skewering world makes it clear in an instant that this is a band with something to say. Their sharp, self-assured lyrics take a no-holds-barred approach to documenting the state of society, the human condition and their own personal battles, all written from the very relatable perspective of a group of young people existing in a time defined by widespread unrest and division. From explorations of self-torment and paranoia (This Broken Design) to not being accepted by society (Flower Into Wounds) and the overwhelming fatigue of living in a superficial culture (Half Pure), Infancy is, at its core, a mirror of the darkest facets of living in 2019. The Ninth Wave’s uncompromising message is delivered in a gargantuan, electrifying sonic style that can’t fully be likened to anyone who’s come before them..

In a wildly oversaturated market of cut-and-paste indie, The Ninth Wave offer a shock of ’80s-infused power pop, drawing influence from the post-punk greats and a blend of their parents’ record collections, including Stevie Nicks, JJ Cale and AC/DC. The vast array of inspirations they cite culminates in something that is wholly unique, lending itself to no labels or sub genres besides “the sound of The Ninth Wave.”

Pre-order the album here, check out the tracklist and listen to "Used To Be Yours", below.

Part I [April 26]
01. This Broken Design
02. Used To Be Yours
03. Half Pure

New Entry: Friendly Fires "Lack Of Love" (Charles B & Adonis Cover)

British indie rock/pop/dance band Friendly Fires have shared their cover  version of Charles B & Adonis' 1988 track "Lack Of Love".

About the cover, the band posted:

Lack Of Love by Charles B & Adonis has been hovering in and around the top of the charts in Friendly Fires land for over 12 years. It was an important tune for us when we started the band, and it's an important tune for us now. It squelches and fizzes and yearns and emotes – it's a piece of secular gospel music that bangs the dance floor, and will do eternally. 

We wanted to cover one of our all-time favourites as a little palate-cleansing exercise; try and make it faithful to the original but also carry off into somewhere new. Thanks to Adonis & Charles B for making the original all those years ago, it continues to inspire us.

Grab it here, and stream it below.
