Slowwave – Pour

Slowwave are a new band from Tacoma, Washington about to release their debut EP. ‘Drag Lake Sin’ is a surprisingly varied piece drifting from new romanticism (‘Scraphead’ is particularly noteworthy) to electronica and back to more traditional indie rock templates. It may or may not help their cause to have a lead singer that sounds like Chris Martin but looking beyond the obvious it’s the cloak of off kilter surrounds that most impresses. Take ‘Pour’ for example with its pulsing and elaborately rhythms. It starts off acoustic and moody but it’s not long before the grand sonic designs reveal themselves. A great start for Slowwave, 2011 should be a big year for them. ‘Drag Lake Sin’ is out on the Savings N Loan label on January 25 but is already streaming on bandcamp. KD
