LISTEN: Wavves Preview Their Upcoming Record With New Track, “Sail To The Sun”
By Staff on December 13, 2012
Feeling a slight chill? Wavves is here to warm up your December with a brand-spanking-new track, “Sail To The Sun.”
Lo-fi? Check. A fuzzy, power chord mixture of garage-rock wails and surfer-punk drums? Check. It’s everything you’d expect of the beach kings, but here’s the twist: Wavves' new LP, to be released in the spring of 2013 via Mom + Pop, will be produced by John Hill (whose credits include such pop cornerstones as Rihanna, P!nk, and Santigold). Although you can be sure to expect the same salt-water-logged, sand-in-your-hair feel as their previous work, perhaps a few new tricks will be found up their sleeves due to Mr. Hill’s influence (the intro to “Sun” was a nice surprise). Just don’t expect anything too polished. If this new track has taught us anything, it’s that old habits die hard. You can take the band out of the garage, but you can’t take the garage out of the band.
Check out the track for yourself for a little taste of summer.
