The Ninth Wave have unveiled the dark-dancefloor ode ‘New Kind Of Ego’. The epic, desperate track is the first to be lifted from their forthcoming EP Never Crave Attention, and is undeniably reminiscent of dark-pop heavyweights Interpol and more recently White Lies. The Glasgow four-piece balance the male/female vocal well through this theatrical offering. The band have been compared to The Cure numerous times, and here they seem to find the sweet middle ground between the sheer simplicity of ‘Close To Me’ and the prog-rock of ‘From The Edge of a Deep Green Sea’. Its accompanying video demonstrates the band’s sense of style and flair.

Speaking about the new single, Haydn says: “‘New Kind Of Ego’ is a dialogue between two people and their insecurities in each other, focusing on the reasons for this lack of trust.”

‘Never Crave Attention’ will be released on April 20th on Distiller Records. Pre-order here.
