Amoeba Review

Dream-folk duo onDeadWaves are wise to use images of the California landscape in their press photos. Their woozy music conjures images of driving down Highway 1 as the sun is setting over the Pacific blue. Recalling Widowspeak or Cults, the band grooves over Byrds-style harmonic guitars on the rollicking “California.” But their music hides a hidden dark heart that gives it depth — even the chorus of that song goes, “we’re all dead in California.” Elsewhere, they’re reminiscent of Julee Cruise or Mazzy Star — witness “Never Over’s” slow-moving splendor, and “Blackbird’s” husky, middle-of-the-night vocals and crisp reverbed guitar tones that weep in the background. James Chapman warm vocals are a perfect counterpart to Polly Scattergood’s creaking leads, as heard on a beautiful dream-pop version of “Autumn Leaves” that was begging to be made. If you’re in need of your next road-trip album, look no further.
