Great Waves today have graced us with their latest single ‘Close Encounters’. The four-piece, have since their last single also gained a new band member. Dan joins them on drums, completing the lineup. Through their energetic live show and insanely catchy releases, Great Waves have become one of the North East’s crowning jewels.
The band started off 2020 looking good with a sold out show at Sunderland’s Independent and with the response of ‘Close Encounters’ so far, it looks like despite a pandemic they’ve managed to maintain hype that should seem them through to when gigs are safe again. I know that I for one will be learning all the words, ready for when they’re gigging.
‘Close Encounters’ is a cheerily upbeat single about the early stages of dating and taking a chance on love. Great Waves have always proven talented at creating catchy hooks and this song is no different. Frontman Khyle Fryer’s dynamic vocals prove distinctive, taking the song to another level.
