I always want bands in rock/punk/indie to collaborate more. It’s just interesting to see how a few creative forces can play off each other to create something distinct from their normal output. On my side is the new Wavves x Cloud Nothings collaborative album, and it’s something like the ’92 Dream Team for fans of modern, emotive punk rock. The opening verse is ripped straight from the Wavves style with its big-stride singing (“Won’t chaaaaaaaaaaaange”) but the chorus is all Cloud Nothings with its brief dip into reflection by way of repetition and pretty electric guitars. All in all, a perfect representation of both bands and a welcome accomplishment.
You can buy and stream the full album on Bandcamp, via Ghostramp.
