The Ninth Wave: Happy Days!

After their well receiver debut full length, Infancy, from 2019, The Ninth Wave return with new EP, Happy Days!, produced by Faris Badwan of The Horrors, and scheduled to arrive on July 17th, 2020 via Distiller Records.

The band's core of Hadyn Park-Patterson and Millie Kidd is now completed with new members Kyalo and Calum who used to be friends of The Ninth Wave from other Glaswegian bands, and now comprise their reinvigorated lineup.

The new EP's title track presents the band's mixture of post punk and new wave once again in full bloom, while their tendency toward art pop and experimentation is also transparent.

"Happy Days! is a song of ups and downs," Haydn says of the new song. "At its core, the lyrics shine a torchlight on the murky highs and lows of life. We wanted to make something harsher and more direct than songs we had written before, and this came together relatively quickly. The flow of the song really captures what we were trying to get across with the lyrics: there's a rumbling undertow throughout the whole song, interspersed with ethereal ambient sections and culminating in big nasty crushing beats. We were all agreed that this should be the first song from our new EP to let people hear, and hopefully they're not frightened away."
