Ones To Watch 2018: The Ninth Wave Q&A

Four Glaswegians who are about to take the world by storm with their uniquely Gothic sound...

We caught up with The Ninth Wave ahead of what we believe will be the biggest year in their career to date…

What has been your highlight of 2017?

Releasing our EP was probably the best part, because after that everything started kicking off and we played a lot of shows up and down the country in support of the release. Recording was also amazing because it was the first time we were able to properly develop ideas we’d been keeping our heads and turn them into the songs that ended up on the EP.

What does 2018 have in store for you?

We’ve got lots of new music on the way that we’ve been recording, plus a lot of live shows that have still to be announced. We’ve got a lot planned out already.

What is your favourite thing about playing live?

When we get the chance to put on our own shows, we always try and create something different. After the EP release we put on a show in a disused railway arch in Glasgow – we built the stage out of wooden pallets along with our manager Hamish and we brought our own lighting. The space itself was amazing so it’s nice to play in non-conventional venues sometimes.
We’ve started noticing people singing along to the words as well so that’s another thing that is strange to experience.

What venue would you absolutely love to headline?
The Barrowlands in Glasgow
