Shortwave Fade
This Is How It Ends EP

Article written by Ian R - Jun 15, 2005

shortwavefade_thisishowiten.jpg

Defining a band solely through comparisons to other acts is a crutch for lazy hacks, but can prove almost unavoidable at times. This would seem to be the case with Shortwave Fade on first listen. Lead track 'Still Dream of Ghosts' is pure Ash, 'Stupidly' pogos somewhere between the Wonderstuff and Supergrass, while 'Through Hoops' shines its light on JJ72 and Suede. Then there are the Jarvis Cocker vocal stylings of 'We Get What We Want' to take into account. It's nothing you haven't heard before but then the glut of bands currently sniffing around the top ten have proved that's of little importance when it comes to achieving success.

But while this may be a bit indie circa 1997, amongst it all there is a gentle yet angry energy which, if nurtured, could see Shortwave Fade shrug off these associations and flourish in their own right.
