THE WHARVES announce debut album 'At Bay' on Gringo Records

London based three-piece The Wharves announce the release of their debut record At Bay via Gringo Records on November 3rd. The band start their UK tour at Power Lunches in London tonight, before heading on to Oxford, Nottingham, Cardiff, Porthcawl and Brighton. They will also perform at Festival No. 6 on Saturday. You can watch the video for ‘Renew’ below.

The Wharves combine gracefully minimal psyche-rock with fuzzed out folk.  The production is courtesy of Rory Attwell (The Vaccines, Mazes, Veronica Falls) makes for one of 2014’s most unique debuts.

They invoke the reverberated spook of 60s girl groups, the mid-fi guitar crunch of Kim Deal’s The Amps, the vocal flavours of The Roches and the narrative and structural of 70’s progressive folk. Marion Andrau’s thunderous drumming drives through these compositions, ensuring the wealth of the band’s various influences.
