While there is no formal theme to The One That Could Have Been, love, death and sacrifice are major inspirations behind Kill The Waves' songwriting, as evidenced in this, their latest single. Kill The Wave's album has already received support from the likes of The Skinny, The Herald, XS Noise, Podcart and BBC Introducing Scotland. There’s a depth to the band’s compositions rarely seen on a full length debut, boasting immaculately arranged strings, synths and guitars which are all held together neatly by Tim Kwant's impressive vocals as he jumps between octaves with ease. While it’s difficult to pigeonhole Kill The Waves as there are elements of lo-fi indie present throughout their work, the band’s ability to create complex, syncopated soundscapes that fill the room bear comparison to the likes of M83 and Four Tet.
Album track 'Vow' premiered on The Skinny website and is available to download on the band's SoundCloud page.
Single The Oak Tree is available to buy on iTunes and is taken from the band's debut album, The One That Could Have Been, which you can also buy digitally.
