UK The Smiths inspired alt rockers WAR WAVES have released a full stream of their second full length “All That We Lack”, a follow up to their 2015’s debut self-titled, released on the same label Backwater Records. Emerging onto the British scene in early 2015 with their eponymous debut album, Ipswich based War Waves have created an exciting buzz and online following with their intensely emotional and hard hitting sound. All That We Lack picks up where the first album left off: 90s influenced guitar hooks and more self-doubt and contradictions woven into creative and infectious songwriting. Listen and leave your thoughts in the comments section below.
War Waves are still strongly influenced by 80’s & 90’s sounds, like The Smiths and The Gaslight Anthem and that shines through in their stripped back songwriting. The album is filled with simple chord progressions, catchy drum beats and an almost lethargic ambience – which, of course, isn’t a bad thing. In fact, it makes for a very pleasing and easy listening experience. / Subba Cultcha
