Folksy Track From On Dead Waves

1923660_13006631214_9795_nOn Dead Waves is the project of Polly Scattergood and James Chapman (Maps), who together are making a bit of apocalyptic/doom folk music. The track below, “Blue Inside,” is a great example of the power that this kind of genre can pack;there’s a layer of haze over the whole track that adds a bit of drama to the usual folk sounds. Vocally, Scattergood commands the tune with a bit of help from Chapman on the chorus, but her voice comes across as fragile and tender, quivering in all the right places. The electric guitar that accompanies the choral arch is cutting and sharp, juxtaposing with the whispery vocals. This single is being released viaMute Records and we can expect a debut album from these two sometime in spring of this year.
