Boomkat Product Review:
Not content to release a single in any conventional sense, The Wave Pictures lift the track 'Just Like A Drummer' from their album Instant Coffee Baby, only to bundle in a further five songs, resulting in something that's straddling the border betwixt EP and mini album. The lead track itself is about as indie as you can get without actually being Hefner, and the Darren Hayman comparisons are bound to come flooding in. Not only is the songwriting very much characteristic of Hayman's oeuvre but David Tattersall's vocals sound incredibly similar in their extravagant sloppiness. This never comes across as a negative though, and thankfully the lyrics are captivating in their own right, good enough to distract you from the extremely lo-fi production values and the limited musical parameters of the band's amiable jangle.
