On Dead Waves On Dead Waves on LP

Debut Album from New Collaborative Project featuring James Chapman (Maps) and Polly Scattergood

Heavy of atmosphere, rich in melody, rippled with an air of malice and flowing female and male vocals, On Dead Waves' debut album will be released via Mute in May 2016. You haven't heard them like this before, but you may already know the band. One is James Chapman, better known as Maps, whose critically acclaimed debut We Can Create was nominated for the Mercury Music Prize, and whose latest album Vicissitude, came out on Mute. The other is Polly Scattergood, the electrically charged artist who has released two solo albums on Mute.

The seeds of Chapman and Scattergood's creative partnership were sown in 2011, at Mute's Short Circuit festival, a special event at London's Roundhouse. The night saw different collaborations with Mute artists and Polly and James paired up to perform each other's songs. Though each had primarily worked alone before, there was something natural about the chemistry between them. "The gig was one of the most enjoyable I've done," says Polly. "And as soon as we finished, we said it'd be cool to do something else."

On release of their debut track "Blackbird," Q Magazine said "...a world of smeared mascara and trailer-park heartache, there's something wonderfully cinematic about this debut single." While The Guardian wrote "'Blackbird,' their debut single, somehow nods to both shoegaze and country, with a David Lynchian creepiness to both music and lyrics."
