Slowwave astounds with mesmerizing hazy vocals, hypnotic echoing melodies, and the clash of indie pop and electronic pop. The band is the freshest thing to come from Tacoma, WA in a while and it’s about time. Nestled between the musical meccas of Seattle and Olympia, Tacoma should be a hotspot for unfettered undiscovered talent; Slowwave shows that it can, will be, and (at least in their case) is. “Pour” blends just enough of that northwest sound to be recognizable, while maintaining a sizable amount of locational and genre-specific ambiguity to be highly intriguing.
“Pour” can be found on Slowwave’s six-song EP Drag Lake Sin, available now on bandcamp.
