Q Magazine -“A smouldering blend of Edgar Allan Poe imagery,

David Lynch and Chris Isaak’s guitar twang.”

The Guardian – “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.”

Clash 8* “…mesmerising”

 The Arts Desk – “one of the year’s essential albums”

 

Polly Scattergood and James Chapman (Maps) aka onDeadWaves have announced the Blackbird EP, out on 28 October 2016. The EP follows the release of their debut album, which came out on Mute earlier in the summer and will coincide with a London live show at the Lexington on the 20 October.

Ahead of the Blackbird EP, the band have released two tracks recently recorded, called Dusk Sessions #1: a brand new acoustic version of ‘California’ and their cover of Pink Floyd’s hypnotic ‘Comfortably Numb’ https://youtu.be/pYK4wm4xKJA

onDeadWaves explain, “We recorded this late one night in the studio, in the countryside, where we had recorded our debut album. We started quite late, and didn’t stop the session to sleep, we just drank coffee and continued recording until the morning – an intense session. We didn’t really talk about it much after we had recorded it, but the song resonated with us both for various reasons on a very deep and personal level.”

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.”

The pair reconvened at James’ studio in the countryside and, starved of social contact, found the landscape provided inspiration. Blackbird, Lauren Laverne’s MPFree pick on announcement, was inspired by a frequent, feathered visitor. Listen to the album version of Blackbird here, described by Q as “… a world of smeared mascara and trailer-park heartache.” and by The Times as a “Languorous Balearic ballad with sullenly gorgeous vocals” https://youtu.be/ZS6fiOVGk80
