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.
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.”
Comprador is a psych rock quartet in Cincinnati, Ohio. Started by multi-instrumentalist and live drummer/singer Charlie D’Ardenne in 2013, the band includes Brianna Kelly on guitar/keys/voice, Jon Delvaux on guitar & voice, and Corey Waddell on bass. The band released a full-length album entitled ‘Pollinator’ in 2015 via In Store Recordings, as well as self-releasing three EPs. First conceived as a Wipers/Dinosaur Jr. style power trio, the band has recently expanded with the addition of Brianna’s keys, Corey’s slide guitar and Charlie teaching himself to play piano, flute, and bass clarinet, all of which appear on upcoming double LP ‘Downstream.’
