The WAEVE – ” Something Pretty ” (Graham Coxon and Rose Elinor Dougall)

Posted: May 8, 2022 in MUSIC

The Pipettes’ Rose Elinor Dougall and Blur’s Graham Coxon announced a new collaborative project called The WAEVE. Today, they’ve shared their first single, an upbeat, punky track called “Something Pretty” that braids post-punk, dream-pop, and conventional rock ‘n’ roll together. It’s fun!

The duo also performed their first live show at The Lexington in London. “We are greatly looking forward to unleashing our new sound live at the Lexington,” the band said ahead of their debut show. “We’ve been locked away, busy translating the varied sounds of our songs into a dynamic live show, with the help of some great musician friends. We invite you to surrender to the world of The WAEVE.” 

The WAEVE…. the coming together of two musicians, who through working together have formed a new, singular, sonic identity. Themes of oblivion and surrender are juxtaposed with suggestions of hopefulness and light.

Against a brutal global backdrop of impending apocalypse and despair, Graham Coxon and Rose Elinor Dougall strove to free themselves through the defiant, blind optimism of making music.
