Wavves give new record release date



Hey, the CMU Approved Wavves have illuminated us all as to what their hip hop and woodblock-featuring new LP will look/sound like when it’s released on 25 Mar.

The band’s Nathan Williams defines the tone of ‘Afraid Of Heights’, thematically a less positive record than his last one ‘King Of The Beach’, as one of “depression and anxiety, being death-obsessed and paranoid of impending doom”.

He adds: “I feel like the narration is almost schizophrenic if you listen front to back; every word is important, even the constant contradictions and lack of self-worth. That’s all a part of this record-questioning everything not because I’m curious, but because I’m paranoid”.

This is its tracklisting, followed by a play of a track it mentions, ‘Demon To Lean On’:

Sail To The Sun
Demon To Lean On
Lunge Forward
Afraid Of Heights
Beat Me Up
Everything Is My Fault
That’s On Me
Gimme a Knife
I Can’t Dream
