BLUES SIGNAL '79 BY GHOST WAVE

Ghost Wave are an Auckland duo peddling psych-rock and blissed out grooves.

Their second LP, Radio Norfolk, which came out in May typifies their blend of krautrock, shoegaze and space rock. Shimmering grooves abound on the track we feature here, Blue Signal '79. The band explain "Blues Signal '79 kinda eventuated out of this other song that we used to play called Jazz Style. The original of the version of the song was way different to what you hear, and I'm really glad that after playing Jazz Style for 3 years, we scrapped it. I'm a big one for throwing songs away, even when I really like them... 3 years later, recorded, the song just wasn't meant to be. I just heard the original recording on the drum stem and was like "nope, this isn't happening", so deleted it. Within 5 minutes the new organ hook had arrived, we dropped the bass on it, and felt like we had a way more captivating piece of music."
