Warrior, the new album from Nicole Schneit’s Air Waves project comes at you next Friday, but before we get there, let’s have one final single, shall we? The album’s title track is not only a powerful step in the thematic elements of the record, but it’s also a testament to the driving infectiousness that pervades the LP. A propulsive guitar line pushes you through the entirety of the tune, vocals delivered in an almost chant/protest fashion. It will also carry a bit of weight that her friend Kevin Morby joins her for some backing vocals on this number; look for the LP April 6th via Western Vinyl.
I’ve been a huge supporter of Air Waves, and was really excited when Nicole Schneit returned to the work with Parting Glances (2015). Today she’s announced her brand new effort, Warrior, which will be released April 6th via Western Vinyl. The record is said to employ the concept “warrior” in various fashions, whether that be her mother fighting cancer or a queer person struggling in the present political climate. Musically, it’s a pretty stripped down song, at least on the surface; has some quieted percussion and backing vocals supporting Nicole’s remarkable voice in the front. Honestly, it has a bit of Beach House to it, only with a little more clarity coming through. Another welcome tune to her catalog…be sure to grab the LP come April.
