Analogue Wave Return With ‘Hope’

Analogue Wave is an Irish-based electronic duo, mixing dub and electronica with breakbeats, vocals and synths. After a three-year hiatus, the band have returned to the underground scene with a brand new single ‘Hope’. This is a call to arms in a world spinning wildly out of control, both politically and climatically, with no hope of a positive ending in sight.

“Hope is a sonic reaction to both the political and climatic turmoil currently threatening modern life as we know it,” explains vocalist Del Chaney. “It was written under the shadow of the farcical US presidential elections and the current fallout from Brexit.” 

Formed in 2012, Analogue Wave have been creating glitchy atmospherically charged musical output for almost five years, leaning heavily on influences such as Leftfield, Nine Inch Nails, Depeche Mode, Massive Attack, Dead Can Dance, Portishead, and those lovely late 80’s Manchester vibes.

The duo consists of Del Chaney (vocals/songwriting) & Andy Sneyd (songwriting/production). They have previously released two full studio albums, their debut album N.l.G.w.V in 2013 and their excellent follw-up, Casimir, in 2014. They have also had their music remixed by artists such as Ummagma, InViolet, Grim, Four Point Zero and Temperance, releasing an impressive remix collection ‘Alterations’ in 2015.

‘Hope’ will be officially released on March 24, 2017 digitally via Bandcamp
