Killer Ponytail

tape wavesYou know summer has truly arrived when Charleston’s Tape Waves release a new record. 

Not only does the duo’s sonic aesthetic conjure up the essence of a beach breeze, but their sound also seems to encapsulate an emotional longing with which it’s nearly impossible not to relate.  

The band’s second album, Here To Fade is slated for release on 29 July via Bleeding Gold Records, and the latest cut ‘Standing In Line’ is the perfect introduction to Tape Waves’ approach to soulful dream pop.

The track rushes in with echo chamber guitars interweaving an intoxicating melody before Kim Hart Weldin’s vocals rise like a plush hit of summer air.

But the song’s summery disposition belies a knowingly sombre subject matter. The band say this of the track:

“‘Standing In Line’ recalls that lovesick feeling, when you’re waiting on the person you love to live up to your ideal…

West Felton packshotjpegTo say that Furrow have been busy recently would be a massive understatement. Between releasing a slew of singles and EPs, as well as tearing up stages with their gnarly brand of cerebral noise across the UK, continental Europe and Japan, Richard Cartwright and Thom Snell have also managed to find the time to write and record their first full length album. And we are excited beyond words (well, apart from the ones you’re reading here) to give you the opportunity to hear the whole album ahead of its release on 1st September.

The album, named after the band’s rural home of West Felton, situated near the Welsh border, might not be quite what you’d expect from two guys hailing from a sleepy English village. West Felton is a powerhouse of towering noise pop built on Cartwright’s relentlessly pounding drums and Snell’s ear ripping bass riffs, all of which coalesce to forge a collection of songs that…

tape waves_2Maybe it’s something to do with the increased vitamin D exposure on the South East coast of the US, but Carolina based husband and wife duo Tape Waves have a knack for distilling the sun drenched vibes of their home city into perfect nuggets of dream pop. After creating plenty of buzz with the release of their debut EP last year, Kim and Jarod Weldin are all set to amp up everyone’s summer with their debut album Let You Go.

new Tape Waves premiere on Killer Ponytail….

tape waves field shotIf there’s one word that sums up South Carolina duo Tape Waves, it’s definitely ‘vibes’. And those ‘vibes’ encompass a landscape of sunshine infused dream pop that could only be the product of traveling around making music with the one you love. After setting the bar high with the release of their debut EP last year, husband and wife duo Kim and Jarod Weldin have now put the final touches to their debut album Let You Go, which is set for release on 28 July on Bleeding Gold Records.

Ahead of the album’s release, we are very excited to premiere the album track ‘Looking Around’, which sits towards the end of the record in all its woozy summertime glory. It’s the musical equivalent of Best Coast hanging out with Slowdive under a palm tree, watching the water lapping at their feet.

Tape Waves create the kind of music made for…

Interview: Furrow

James from Killer Ponytail had a chat with FURROW…

Killer Ponytail

Furrow_2Furrow are two guys from a small village called West Felton just on the English/Welsh border. But don’t let their bucolic background fool you. Furrow create gnarly, super lo-fi noise pop capable of reigniting any flagging house party. Between Richard Cartwright’s pounding rhythms and Thom Snell’s shredded bass sound, Furrow also manage to infuse their songs with plenty of melodic verve and enough catchy hooks to give the likes of No Age a run for their money. We caught up with Rich and Thom to talk about playing in caravans, forging new comedy musical genres and their forthcoming album.

How did you guys first start making music together? 

Thom: We come from this little place called West Felton, and we both ended up back there after university. We were hanging around, looking for jobs and listening to lots of No Age.

Rich: Yeah, we were thinking about what No Age were doing and…
