Nathan Williams recently said in a press release that the new Wavves
album was centered on “depression and anxiety, being death-obsessed and paranoid of impending doom.” As you can tell from the newly posted album stream, courtesy of NPR’s First Listen
, that darkness translates mostly to the lyrics on Afraid Of Heights
, while the guitars remain jittery and upbeat. “None of you will ever understand me,” Williams laments before busting into woo-oo-oo
s on the garage-popping “Lunge Forward.” Welcome to your mid-20s, Nathan. Don’t worry: It gets better.
Afraid Of Heights
is out March 26 on Mom And Pop. Stream it below.
