The Ninth Wave unveil new single 'First Encounters'

With the first half of their upcoming debut double album arriving later this week, The Ninth Wave have now unveiled the next cut to be lifted from their forthcoming release.

The new single 'First Encounters' follows on from the previously shared tracks 'Used To Be Yours' and 'Half Pure' in previewing the first part of their new LP 'Infancy', which will arrive on the 3rd May via Distiller Records, with the second half expected on the 15th November.

Speaking of their latest release, frontman Haydn Park-Patterson said, “It’s about trying to keep up with normal life when on the inside you feel totally lost, so much so that it feels like that state could very easily become a permanent part of who you are. Everyone, at some point in their lives, feels the pressure and anxieties of existence.”
