DEBUT ALBUM OUT NOW

onDeadWaves.AlbumCover.Digital2

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”

XS Noize 9* “Strangely seductive”

 Polly Scattergood and James Chapman (Maps) aka onDeadWaves have unveiled the new video for California, a long-shot cavort through a ‘70s Californian pool party. Directed by Mexico’s Groovy Chaos, who have previously directed for Moby, watch it here: https://youtu.be/Ona-cry5zEM

California is taken from the band’s debut album. Described by The Arts Desk as “one of the year’s essential albums”, onDeadWaves are Polly Scattergood and James Chapman (aka Maps), who met at Mute’s legendary Short Circuit festival where they each performed one another’s songs.

The band have announced they will support M83 on their forthcoming Manchester (26 June) and Glasgow dates (27 June), before returning to London for a headline show at The Victoria, Dalston on Wednesday 29 June, full details below:

26 June – Manchester, 02 Ritz – with M83
27 June – Glasgow, 02 ABC – with M83
29 June – London, The Victoria Dalston – free show, register for tickets here:

The seeds of James Chapman and Polly Scattergood’s creative partnership were sown in 2011, at Mute’s 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. Launch track Blackbird, Lauren Laverne’s MPFree pick on announcement, was inspired by a frequent, feathered visitor. Listen to 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

Listen to the band’s latest single, California, which has been garnering support from BBC 6Music and Radio 2 here: https://youtu.be/1jZqlJjXK4Y
