Good afternoon, it’s time for lunch. We thought we’d give you a chance to preview one of our favourite new tracks on the compilation – Waves by Bedlamb. What a meal! Check it out below..
The duo is a collaborative project between Jake Horgan (Phoneutrian) and Izzy Hadlum, who is a key member of the Plenty Fuss collective, who have put on some of our favourite gigs over the last year or so. They founded as a more experimental collaboration for Tramlines 2019, and have slowly developed into a more polished, but equally as exciting guitar based outfit; drawing inspiration from 90s indie, 80s goth, dream pop and ‘wandering lambs’.
The track itself begins with a gentle, haunting ambience, that slowly develops into minimal, emotive post-punk. Recorded at Delicious Clam studios earlier this year, Izzy went into more detail about the lyrics:
“It’s partly about the paradox of sometimes feeling less alone when actually on your own – finding peace in that solitude, being comfortable with that , but also mixed in with an insomniac mood, and the frustrations of modern pressures on the psyche”.
It also features drumming by Tom Sprackland, a regular member of both Slug Milk and Feudalism Now!
