On Dead Waves

Listen To Their Version Of Yazoo’s ‘Only You’

DUSK SESSIONS #2 OUT 2 DEC

DEBUT ALBUM OUT NOW

Following the release, earlier this year, of onDeadWaves’ debut album on Mute, Polly Scattergood and James Chapman (Maps) have unveiled their version of Yazoo’s Only You.

The track, recorded by Yazoo and originally released on Mute in 1982 became Christmas Number 1 the following year, thanks to a version recorded by The Flying Pickets. onDeadWaves’ reinterpretation will be released on Dusk Sessions #2, alongside a brand new recording of the band’s own Winter’s Child, out on 2 December.

Praise for onDeadWaves’ debut album
“A smouldering blend of Edgar Allan Poe imagery, David Lynch and Chris Isaak’s guitar twang.” – Q Magazine
“Theirs is a misty, spectral sort of guitar ambience, a whispered, wistful duet from Chapman and Scattergood positing them as a new take on the Nancy & Lee – or Isobel Campbell and Mark Lanegan – paradigm.” – The Guardian
“…mesmerising” – Clash
“one of the year’s essential albums” – The Arts Desk

 

 

The seeds of James Chapman and Polly Scattergood’s creative partnership were sown in 2011, at Mute’s legendary Short Circuit festival at London’s Roundhouse. The night saw different collaborations with Mute artists and Polly and James paired up to perform each other’s songs. Though each had primarily worked alone before, there was something natural about the chemistry between them. “The gig was one of the most enjoyable I’ve done ” says Polly. “And as soon as we finished, we said it’d be cool to do something else.”
