The Cherry Wave – ‘Whitey’

the cherry wave-profile

The Cherry Wave have posted ‘Whitey‘, the first track from their forthcoming debut LP ‘Avalancher’! The Glasgow shoegaze act first impressed with their ‘Blush’ EP (almost two years ago). Since then the fuzz fiends have played numerous Scottish shows and support slots with international talent like Ringo Deathstarr. Their latest retains the lo-fi charm of ‘Blush’ and adds a punchy, angular feel. I’m sure you’ll agree, it’s good to have them back! ‘Avalancher’ is expected next month.
