Wave Machines

Art rock disco made on a Cash Converter keyboard and start up drum kit, that's how Wave Machines describe themselves. Hailed from Liverpool, Wave Machines create a fragile pop, built on glitchy bass lines and falsetto vocals. Think of the love child of Hot Chip, with a little essence of Architecture In Helsinki.

Lead single "
Keep The Lights On" from debut "Wave If You're Really There" is a slow motion lo-fi nu disco which is reminiscent of Scissor Sisters. Synth-charged vibe and groovy basslines, coupled with amazing falsetto, is certainly catchy and nothing short of incredible. A perfect breezy disco tune which is bound to be on repeat on anyone's playlist.

Meanwhile, the sweet and sweaty “
I Go I Go I Go” is all bouncy guitars, funky basslines and catchy vocals, all converging to create the perfect summer single. The joyful optimism is bound to make everyone hooked and bounce in the moshpit. The track has been out since last year but it did not get enough exposure or recognition it truly deserved.

There is certainly excitement for the debut album from these scousers, which is set to be released in May or June.
