AFTER closing 2018 with their biggest headline show to date at Saint Luke’s, The Ninth Wave have refused to rest on their laurels and have instead thrust themselves into the new year with the release of a brand new track called ‘Half Pure’.

Produced by Dan Austin and mixed by the renowned Alan Moulder, most recognisable for his work with The Killers, Nine Inch Nails, Placebo and The Jesus and Mary Chain among others, their latest instalment is brimming with the confidence of a band who have been tipped to have a massive 2019.

Widescreen in its ambition and built on an unflinching foundation of gothic synths and cavernous drums, ‘Half Pure’ falls thematically in line with the tracks that came before it, dealing with issues of identity and superficiality over some typically seismic post-punk. More than anything though, it’s yet another sign of the band’s relentless desire make it to the top.
