WAVE MACHINES – ILL FIT (Indie/Pop – UK)

Wave Machines

Three years on from their debut album, UK indie electro outfit Wave Machines have not been standing still. Some of their compositions have been featured in compilations (Annie Mac), ad campaigns and TV series (Skins and Entourage), and now they have a new disco-infused single streaming on their SoundCloud.

“Ill Fit” is taken off Wave Machines’ forthcoming sophomore album, to be released in early 2013. The song was produced by Lexxx (Arcade Fire, Bjork, Goldfrapp) between London and the band’s base at St Brides Church and lead signer Tim Bruzon describes it as “the fuzzy moment right before you make a decision to do something right or wrong, justifiable or unjustifiable, your last moment at the point of return.”

Wave Machines will embark on a short UK tour in October. Get all the details on their official website or Facebook. Buy their music on Wave

WAVE MACHINES – COUNTING BIRDS (Experimental – UK)

Three years after their cult album Wave If You’re Really There, Liverpool-based indie electro outfit Wave Machines are finally back with their haunting new single “Counting Birds” and they’ve decided to make it available for free on their SoundCloud, for a limited time only.

“Counting Birds” reveals the band’s darker side, it is more nuanced and introspective than their usual lush disco-hook sound. Simultaneously intimate and epic, this new song points towards what will be a massive return-to-the-fray of one of the most promising acts of the last few years.

WAVE MACHINES – WAVE IF YOU'RE REALLY THERE (Electro/Indie/Pop – UK)

Hailing from Liverpool, Wave Machines is a band led by singer songwriter Tim Bruzon. With their blend of alternative electropop, Tim and his mates have charmed all major music blogs and are set to conquer more hearts with their debut LP.

Their music includes rhythms built on melodic sound effects, fun synth sounds and suave falsetto vocals. Think Hot Chip, XTC or The Beta Band, but a little more straight-forward.

The band released their debut album, Wave If You’re Really There, which was recorded in the bowels of the old organ room at St. Brides Church in England. This unusual setting really helped give a unique sound to the debut LP and even gave them a place to practice, perform and even throw concerts.

Described as a mix-up between danceable disco beats and guitar-driven indie songwriting, the songs that make up their album are generally upbeat and playful. There are a few straight-up indie guitar songs, and then a few disco-y grooves. Entertaining and engaging, this first effort shows great maturity and a clear passion for experimentation.
