Waves is the follow up to the Aberdeen trio Alphas debut single, Here Comes The Burn, and captures the band’s kinetic onstage presence with a pure punchy indie pop sound that could easily appeal to fans of The Futureheads as well as newcomers The Bulletproof Bomb. The track was written around the idea that people and their dreams change over time, but that everybody needs to keep on searching, within and without, to truly know themselves.
The band’s members not only share their taste in music, citing the likes of Doves and Blur as influences, they also share first names, with Andrew Burden taking on vocal and guitar duties, Andy Kite providing bass guitar and synthesisers, and Andy Clark holding them all together on drums. They plan to spend the rest of the summer touring Scotland, having already played shows at Sneaky Pete’s, Edinburgh and XpoNorth Festival, while they set the scene for the release of their debut album New Fire in September.
