The Shortwave Channel
Drums. Bass. Organ. San Diego's heroic trio, The Shortwave Channel, deliver a formidable sonic wall with their debut full-length, Bright Lights They Hurt. Without a guitar to hurt the ears, The Shortwave Channel's unique brand of atmospheric momentum rock lunges straight for your heart, the low frequencies developing songs you feel pounding deep within. Not unlike
Shellac, The Shortwave Channel builds bass-driven rhythmically swelling melodies to move your heads and feets, but with a far more soulfully infectious pulse and a warmer, more fragile nature, creating a world closer to Joy Division. They'll rock your little world, then wash you away with a simple, delicate tone. Few bands alive today can make one sway like this. Ladies and gentlemen, The Shortwave Channel.
