What?: They may be the freshest signing to Mute label, but for many On Dead Waves more than likely features a couple of faces just a little bit familiar to many of you. A new collaborative project from Polly Scattergood and Maps mastermind James Chapman, On Dead Waves announced themselves with debut single ‘Blackbird’ at the tail end of 2015. The track is a free download that so far remains all there is available to hear from the duo, but one that equally is more than enough to whet appetites for the release of their debut album next spring. Expect sumptuous, dreamy and melancholic dream pop of the finest order.
