Having arrived in 2 parts, “Infancy” is a masterfully crafted and genre defying album which comes straight from the hearts of Haydn Park-Patterson and Millie Kidd. The album is an amazing listen which takes you on an exploration of the darker pits of society and what makes us human.

We admittedly were a little late to The Ninth Wave party, which is unusual given our adoration of Scottish bands and post-punk music. Then again, the Scottish outfit led by co-lead vocalists Haydn Park-Patterson (guitar) and Millie Kidd (bass) and includes Louise MacLennan (synths) and Lewis Tollan (drums) are still in their early ’20s and their careers are just taking off.

The two EPs they released this year on Distiller Records – “Never Crave Attention”and “Flesch” – are modern-day post-punk masterpieces with songs like “Swallow Me” and A Wave Goodbye to the People Who Said I’d Win highlighting the respective records. What catches your attention is The Cure- and Joy Division-like wail and urgency of their sound and the unbridled honesty and poignancy of their songs. Comparisons to these two legendary bands have been earned, and the quartet can and hopefully will one day reach these lofty levels.

Their single ‘Breakfast’ was one of the best pop songs of the last year and there’s plenty more at that level up their sleeve. Singer Laura Hayden has a commanding stage presence and impeccable vocals. She is the band leader pop needs to make 2017 a fun year for music. Bassist/producer Joshua Rumble ensures that even without backing tracks their stage sound is as beautifully embelished as their recordings. Meanwhile, Blossoms’ guitar tech Jackson Couzens has just taken on guitar duties, and Harry Balazs has at the drum kit like there’s no tomorrow. They’ll will win over the nation this summer.
