A Shoegaze band from Glasgow, Scotland who employ blissed-out dense fuzz drones, reverberated hypnagogic vocals and hazy echoes as their sonic trademark. The Cherry Wave formed in 2012 and have since released a self-titled demo, which received a cassette release on Good Grief Records. The now sold out cassette also featured hand made packaging by artist Anna Kraay. Their EP entitled 'Blush' followed and was released by Lamppost Records and Wolf Among Wolves Records, the CD version of which has also sold out.
At the end of 2014 the band signed to the American Shoegaze label Saint Marie Records, home of SPC ECO, Lightfoils, Panda Riot, Seasurfer, Spotlight Kid, Sway and many more. Saint Marie Records released their debut album 'Avalancher' in early 2015. They also repackaged and re-released the band's popular 'Blush' EP. You can now find their music for sale everywhere from Amoeba Music in Los Angeles to File Under Records in Nagoya, Japan. Following the release of 'Avalancher' they went on to play their first show outside of Scotland. In the Autumn of 2015 they joined Johnny Marr, Spiritualized, Echo And The Bunnymen, The Fall, Young Fathers, Public Service Broadcasting and more at the inaugural Rockaway Beach Festival in England.
Since 2012 they've shared the stages of Glasgow with many bands, including Ringo Deathstarr, No Joy, Pinkshinyultrablast, The Telescopes, Dead Rabbits, St Deluxe, The KVB, Holy Esque, The Yawns, Nothing, Paws, Milk Teeth, Le' Thug, Dengue Fever and countless more.
Glasgow quartet The Cherry Wave have rounded off the edges of their wall-of-noise-pop on sophomore album Shimaru, released on Monday 23 January 2017.
Recorded with Lewis Glass at Glassworks Studio Recording in Glasgow, Shimaru is a more considered and less out-and-out noisy follow-up to their 2015 debut Avalancher. Self-released and self-funded, Shimaru is ten tracks of noisy shoegaze pop and a great introduction to the band if you’re not yet familiar with them.
A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit.
The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
Marva Von Theo is an Electropop / Synthwave duo formed in 2016 by the Athens-based singer-songwriter Marva Voulgari and the Vienna-based composer-producer Theo Foinidis.

Darkwave sounds, Jazz harmonies, Rock and Dance drum beats resonate together and mature into something darkly romantic.
