Waves of Dread: Endless

English indie trio Waves of Dread give their 2019 single The Make-Believe the opening slot on their new EP Endless. Back then they were deep into neo-psychedelic rock, a genre that is still recognizable in their current sound, but thye have branched out and added ambient shoegaze (Blind) and electronic pop (Solitude) to their palette. The Jesus and mary Cahina and Britpop continue to be major influences and the two of them come together in Way It Is, a surf-tinged song with an instantly hummable melody.

Cramming such a wide variety of genres into half a dozen of songs could have resulted in recording an indiscernible mess of sounds, but they managed to keep it from falling apart. Endless flows like a continious piece of music that has "recommended late-night listening" written all over it.

Endless is a self-released EP. Buy it from their website.
