Formed by Graham Coxon, formerly of Blur, and Rose Elinor Dougall, formerly of The Pipettes and Mark Ronson’s backing band, the duo behind The WAEVE initially began working together just to see what happened. The result is an eclectic album that draws on Folk, Indie, and Psych Rock and hinges on Coxon’s saxophone playing rather than fuzzed-up guitar riffs. Joined by synths and programmed drums, the voices of Dougall and Coxon are routinely relaxed and cautionary in tone. Woven into a loose Kosmische on ‘Sleepwalking’, a Soft Rock ballad on ‘You’re All I Want To Know’, and pulsing, synth-driven Post Punk on ‘Kill Me Again’, Coxon’s saxophone becomes the star of the show. That doesn’t mean ‘The WAEVE’ is devoid of his guitar chops, as evidenced by the dramatic outro of ‘Over And Over’, but the overall vibe here is uniquely that of The WAEVE and all the better for it.
