“Urgent and buzzing garage rock that hums with an energy that belies its slacker heart” – The Fader
“Even if Waiting A Lifetime draws influence from dreamy Scottish goths or spacey French synth masters, it’s still being made by a rag-tag crew of rockers with boundless energy to match their sharply tuned ears.” – i-D
“Scuzzy indie-pop that zips into one ear and stays lodged in your brain.” – Noisey
Splashh was formed in 2012 by friends Sasha Carlson and Toto Vivian. The pair have been making music together since they were teenagers in the suburbs of Australia, which to be fair, was only a few years ago. The line-up is now completed by Tom Beal and Jaie Gonzales.
In 2015, the band divided themselves between London and New York City, for a time of “self-imposed exile to write.” The idea being that the time apart, and the different influences of the two cities, would bring a new dimension to the music. With the addition of new members, and the production skills of Nicolas Vernhes, (War on Drugs, Deerhunter, Dirty Projectors) the sound that this creative time had cultivated has been beautifully captured on Waiting A Lifetime.
“When we first went in the studio, we had a different idea of how we wanted the record to sound,” says Vivian. “We had been sitting with the demos for 3 years, so we had an idea of what we thought the album should sound like. When we went into the studio with Nicolas, we started fresh and tore the songs apart. It was a lot of fun to experiment and take it as far as we could. It was liberating.”
Adding another layer to the album is the band’s aesthetic. The album artwork is by artist Lucien Smith, who created original works of sculpture he then photographed for the band to use.
Signed to the label Cinematic Music Group, the band now has the resources to preach their gospel worldwide.
