Despite their name, the brand new Wave weren’t some trend-hopping band from the past due ’70s or early ’80s, but a soft rock and roll sunshine pop duo from the past due ’60s. Made up of vocalist/songwriters Tommy Andre and Reid Ruler, they released an obscure, self-titled recording around the Canterbury label, also the house of fellow sunlight poppers the Yellowish Balloon. Hardly any is well known about the brand new Wave, though from your album sleeve photos they look incredibly young, probably still within their teenagers. The album is actually so gentle and pop-ish that its romantic relationship to rock and roll music is certainly small and it occasionally noises geared as very much or more towards the mature pop marketplace as the pop/rock and roll one. Their materials stresses breezy, samba-influenced close-harmony intimate music, acoustic guitars, and light percussion embroidered by vibes plus some orchestration. The music is certainly pleasurable but fluffy, relatively just like the most pop-oriented materials by Chad & Jeremy, although resemblance isn’t incredibly strong.
