Today, The Ninth Wave release ‘Swallow Me’, the second single from their forthcoming EP ‘Never Crave Attention’, released April 20th on Distiller Records. Listen to ‘Swallow Me’ here: https://soundcloud.com/theninthwaveofficial/the-ninth-wave-swallow-me


On ‘Swallow Me’, The Ninth Wave continue to delve into the darker side of human nature, exploring the dynamics of a manipulative relationship.

With its sharp ’80s synths and frenetic, genre-shattering guitar riff, the track is perhaps the band’s darkest offering yet, reminiscent of The Cult, Interpol and Talking Heads. “Haydn was whipped and punched while doing the vocal takes,” recall the band of the recording process; a testament to their commitment to creating something authentic and experiential.


Speaking about the track, the band say: “‘Swallow Me’ is about being used and is based around an observation of a dysfunctional relationship and the damage caused. For the victim, the realisation of the situation they are in is hard to swallow.”


The Ninth Wave’s debut EP ‘Reformation’ was released late last year and has already garnered huge acclaim for the Scottish upstarts, with the likes of BBC Radio 1, 6 Music and Radio X all championing the band. Through their collaborations with radical fashion designer Charles Jeffrey and alt-rock trio Demob Happy, the band have displayed a ravenous hunger to push the envelope and create a unique, all-encompassing experience.
