I was lucky to get my ears on Wave Machines’ upcoming debut album ‘Wave If You’re Really There.’ I was already excited on the strength of “I Go I Go I Go” and “Keep The Lights On.” Upon first listen, I’m blown away. I haven’t heard such a solid and diverse debut record since ‘Santogold.’ The group mixes in upbeat electro-pop, traditional tender British ballads, and… well, maybe its not as diverse as Santi’s record but it sounds bloody great. Great songwriting and production throughout – is that generic? Ugh. Just go listen to “The Line,” “The Greatest Escape We Ever Made,” the fore mentioned songs, and join the bandwagon. I’m sitting shotgun. You got bitch! haha.
