UNEARTHING exciting new talent is what drives us on a daily basis at TENEMENT TV; especially when that talent sprouts from within our nation’s continuously flourishing music scene. Hailing from Dundee, the rather mysterious BETA WAVES were the latest outfit to pop up on our radar when they released their scintillating debut single ‘I Think I’m Melting’ at the start of the year.
Oscillating between blissful ambient tones and vibrant psychedelia, the track is a glistening introduction to the outfit; a bold statement of intent that was enough to place the duo on our ‘Ones To Watch’ list of 2018. Anchored by a massive synth-riff which sets the track alight and quickly wiggles its way into your consciousness, a combination of warm nostalgia and cosmic futuristic vibes distinguish the duo as fledgling descendants of modern psych bands such as Jagwar Ma, MGMT and Tame Impala. Wholly refreshing and accomplished in execution, it’s a bright start to what is surely going to be a very intriguing journey indeed.
Following its official release earlier this month, the band have now paired the track with some brand new visuals by Árpád Horváth; a video we are delighted to premiere here on TTV. In keeping with the psychedelic feel of the song, the clip combines nostalgic sun-kissed images with kaleidoscopic colours and glitchy sequences to create a rather mind-bending yet equally compelling viewing experience.
