Comprador – “Waves Hiss Forward”

If you like Devendra Banhart’s music and psychedelic rock then this song by Comprador is your cup of tea. “Waves Hiss Forward” kicks off with dynamic keys and percussion; the guitars, vocals and rest of the instrumentation start adding to the core melody in delicate yet very harmonious layers as the song progresses.

“Waves Hiss Forward” is the third and last single that the Cincinnati based band shares in anticipation of their double album Downstream to be available digitally and on cassette via Dark Circles Records on May 18th. While the prior singles built on the band’s origins as a guitar-driven power trio, “Waves Hiss Forward” plays with the more diverse instrumentation made possible live with the group’s expansion to a quartet lineup in 2017. Live drummer / singer Charles D’Ardenne performs drums, bass, electric guitar, piano, synth, vocals and flute on this recording, and live guitarist Jon Delvaux added synth & mixed the song.

According to he band “The lyrics, within the album’s aquatic theme, address how time erodes memories, and the struggle to find significance in loss.”
