WAVVES New Album, Afraid of Heights + Hear New Single “Demon To Lean On”

WAVVES Afraid of Heights
Listen to our FAVORITE ALBUMS OF 2014. Make sure you don't miss any tunes: FOLLOW US ON TWITTER.

“Demon To Lean On,” like the single before it, “Sail To The Sun,” walks a little more on the pop side of things as Nathan Williams whines in his curiously likable way about his problems. It’s like pleasant suffering. “I pace along the grass / and think of what we had / ambivalent and young / but probably just dumb / the truth is that it hurts / and what’s it really worth? / no hope and no future.”

The new album, Afraid of Heights, will be out March 26 on Mom and Pop. WAVVES are on tour with FIDLAR, which should make for an excellent show. Dates below:

With Man It Feels Like Space Again, Pond seem to have made it a priority to remind listeners that they are the reigning goofballs of psychedelic rock.

Barring the few brilliant moments (and there are a few), Future Brown’s debut full-length feels tired and inconclusive.
