What's Real is the sophomore album and Vagrant Records debut from Waters. Serving as a follow up to 2011’s Out In The Light, and 2014’s It All Might Be OK EP, What’s Real is comprised of eleven honest and raw tracks reminiscent of alternative rock stalwarts of the 90’s. 

“I started writing this album as soon as we got home from touring behind our debut record Out In The Light,” says frontman Van Pierszalowski. “All of a sudden, I was sitting still for the first time in years, and I dove into my early musical influences to find that what I once thought were alternative anthems of recklessness, of angst, of societal alienation, were also perfectly constructed songs. It wasn’t pop. But it became popular for a reason. As a songwriter I began to see that music in a new light.”

What’s Real was recorded over a 15-month period with Grouplove producer/drummer Ryan Rabin as well as producer Carlos De La Garza (Paramore). The result is the perfect juxtaposition of songs that sound and feel big, all the while being incredibly personal and brutally honest. “While current alternative radio is pumping out songs about the ‘best day of my life,’ I wanted to write songs about heartbreak, about finding clarity about feeling stuck in your hometown,” notes Van. “And I wrote it with the hope that people connect with it in a visceral way. In an emotional way.” 

From start to finish What’s Real is the epitome of relatable with tracks like “I Feel Everything” that touch on the addiction of abusive and extreme relationships while “Over It” is about finally getting out of it, and “What’s Real” is about the constant struggle to weed out the impersonal and temporary relationships and wanting more. We’ve all been there. Desperate times. When you’d rather be in any situation but the one you’re in. “When we finished the record I felt like we had made a sonic place. It felt like my bedroom in high school. We accomplished my goal in providing a world for someone who needs a real alternative. An escape.”
