Earlier this week, Sleeper Agent finally released “Waves” from their sophomore album, due to be released next year.
I first heard this song in its demo state while staying with band members Alex and Tony—two of my beloved friends—in Bowling Green. It was stuck in my head from that moment on, and after hearing it later at their practice session, I already had it memorized.
I heard it a final time at Starry Nights last fall, and from backstage, I belted out every word.
Until now, I hadn’t heard it since. It’s been a long wait, but worth it. To hear it grow from its rough demo state to this clean and enchanting version is so rewarding. If it’s rewarding for me, I can hardly imagine how the band feels! (See what Rolling Stone had to say about the new track here).
The band is currently in the process of shooting the video for Waves in Los Angeles, and I’m eager to see what pops up as a result.
Sleeper Agent will be playing in San Francisco with New Politics at The Independent on February 16th, 2014. If you’re in the bay area, come to the show and you can see us both! :)
