Basement Revolver have announced their new EP Wax And Digital, will drop on October 18, via Sonic Unyon (Slowcoaches, Terra Lightfoot). The band recently shared a new video for the album’s title-track. The band will be playing this year’s Reeperbahn Festival in Hamburg, Germany, September 19-20.
Singer Chrisy Hurn on “Wax and Digital:”
“‘Wax and Digital’ is about me and my husband, the music that we love together, and how that music has shaped our relationship. In a broader sense it is about how culture informs our lives – even though culture changes rapidly and is temporary, we will always have certain things to hold on to, like music, to look back on and feel sentimental about. I hope that people take away a sense of nostalgia within their own lives, from the things that have helped them to fall in love, or that people think about the things that they have lost, but with thankfulness. Life is a crazy mess, but it’s beautiful and confusing and poetic, may we never forget the things that help us to make some sense of it.”
Basement Revolver have expanded to a 4-piece, with the founding trio of guitarist-vocalist Chrisy Hurn, bassist Nimal Agalawatte, and drummer Brandon Munro, adding second guitarist Jonathan Malström to further augment and intensify their emotionally charged dream-pop. With her mind on her upcoming marriage, Hurn wrote this collection of songs in a period of change. The EP looks back at her religious upbringing that she has – for the most part – since left behind, and gazes ahead at the person she hopes to become.
