The Ninth Wave

London Calling 2021

THE NINTH WAVE

This intriguing and exciting noise pop outfit hailing from Glasgow is, quite obviously, heavily influenced by the new wave and gothic pop music of the 1980s. The inviting combination of ominous rock and dramatic synth-pop has ensured that The Ninth Wave have already recruited The Horrors, Paramore’s Hayley Williams and Chvrches among their fans. Two-part debut album ‘Infancy’ from 2019 immerses the listener into their dystopian, 80’s setting in which themes such as mental health and the fragility of masculinity are tackled. After 2020 threw a spanner in the works for their tour with Hayley Williams, now the time has finally come for the Scots to give their first performance in The Netherlands.
