These Waves, “Consolation Prize”

“There’s no way we can stay here.”

The Painting By Units demos were low quality, but still showed potential. I was holding out for something better. After hearing the newly recorded self-titled EP from Derby’s These Waves, I am thrilled I stuck around while the band had the time they needed to fall into their groove.  They’re a five piece alt-rock band with genre nods in every other direction – post hardcore, math rock, fight pop, insert any other sub-genre you see fit, etc. They package it together cohesively, however, and the new EP is pretty fantastic – a great mix of the band’s  keen pop sensibilities and technical chops.   Only one show, far ahead in October, is up on the grid for now – let’s hope for some more.  You can grab the EP free on Bandcamp.
