“Pounding…Haunting…Elegant” (RnR Magazine) – Will Odgers, Debbie Brown, Jolyon Holroyd, Andrew Claridge, Joe Mansfield, Jonny Cook, Miranda Sykes, Bruce Whiteley, and Damo Waters are the Standing Waves. With influences including Wilco, Big Star, Fleetwood Mac, Ron Sexsmith and Feist among others, their debut album Early Reflections has been released this year and the band are already making a name for themselves. Q magazine wrote “The Standing Waves exist in a modern mid-Atlantic musical milieu that increasingly intersects in the related worlds of alt-folk, alt-country and quite possibly, alt-alt. Their songs… pull off the difficult trick of being both muscular and melancholy”.
