Fazia um certo tempo que os ingleses não aportavam por aqui, mas a ausência enfim foi suprida em grandioso retorno.
De Newcastle, o quinteto Waves of Dread pega suas guitarras e as direciona ao paraíso. Com a benção de Neil Young e J. Mascis aliada a um lirismo e inclinação ao pop, cortesia da influència dos irmãos Paddy e Martin McAloon, pra quem não sabe os fundadores do Prefab Sprout, o Waves of Dream moldou seus dois primeiros singles neste ambiente.
A sedutora e viciante "In Your Mind" e "Flying" são os cartões de visita de uma banda a ser acompanhada desde o início.
Lembre-se, Waves of Dread e das guitarras do paraíso ok.

I recorded the demos at home, I've got a pretty basic setup but it does the job

Release some more demos, maybe put a band together and do some gigs
