Let me introduce you to Analogue Wave, a band (or electro super-duo in waiting) who have all but taken over my musical playlists ever since their compact disc bombardment of my letterbox commenced a couple of months ago. Okay it was 3 CD’s that fell through my door, but that single action has all but managed to keep my postman in a job, my ears occupied through an endless slog of college work and also preserve the tangibility of music. It’s amazing what a little plastic disc can achieve.
Analogue Wave are a Dublin based duo made up of members Del Chaney (vocals/songwriter) and Gint (producer/songwriter). They formed back in 2012, bringing together both a mutual love of electronic music and a combined experience of over 20 years. To date, Analogue Wave have released an impressive array of tracks through various singles and EPs.
They released their debut single Fingers back in March this year and followed up with the more recent MEZKAL. Both are available for download on their soundcloud page. A debut album is also in the works and should be released sometime during the summer months, most likely in August.
The band’s distinct style has roots in a variety of genres including Dub, Electronica, Synth and Rock. But the overriding stylistic feature present in all of AW tunes to date has to be the satisfying and most certainly nostalgic throwback to the 90’s. All in all, Analogue Wave are a formidable talent. And with a strong commitment to live shows and gigs, their stature can only increase. Most definitely ones to watch out for in the not so distant future.
