Wavves – “Demon To Lean On”

A little while back, Wavves announced an impending new album and shared the track “Sail To The Sun.” And now we know a few more things about the LP: It’s called Afraid Of Heights, the duo made it with producer John Hill, and frontman Nathan Williams says that, “The general theme of the record is depression and anxiety, being death-obsessed and paranoid of impending doom.” He’s also let us hear the new song “Demon To Lean On,” a snottily catchy bit of bubblegrunge that would’ve been all over alt-rock radio in, say, 1995. That transition from the bridge to the last chorus is absolutely killer; this guy is becoming better at the whole pop-songwriting thing all the time.
