“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:
