Geneva Waves - Single Review: Wild Arrivals

29 May 2022 // A review by Darryl Baser

Geneva Waves is a one person musical project, based in Tamaki Makaurau/Auckland.

Steven Tait is the man behind the moniker, who’s produced this wonderful piece of music.

Live acoustic drums with layers of bass and guitars provide a sonically interesting sound bed for Tait’s voice to sit on top of well.

Tait has played with bands before, but Geneva Waves is his first completely solo outing, tracking all the instruments at home before having it mixed and mastered in a studio. The result is a nice capturing of good performances and then produced very well.

The layers of guitar in Wild Arrivals shimmer in a song, which is the first release from a four-song EP due to be released later in 2022.

Rating: ( 4 / 5 )

Now that’s a great way to open an album. Bruised and Broken is the first track of Mecuzine’s new album Locksmith Thief, and my god what an epic track to open their new record.

If I had to sum up The New Things four-song EP Pink Chocolate in two words they would be ‘perfectly imperfect’. The New Things are Tina McIvor and Jason Tamihana-Bryce, both have been around the indie music scene for a number of years separately and together; touring Japan a few years back.

11 May 2022 // by Darryl Baser
The 2021 released single Just One Step by Tony Jacob is a sumptuously produced song, with lyrics and a very positive vibe. "You can move on mountains with just one step, you could take the world on with no regrets..

Nigel Parry - Single Review: One Word War
02 Dec 2021 // by Darryl Baser
“Me job to pick off the Hun, In the sights a lad like me, One shot, and I’m alone;” just a few of the lines of this stunning, beautiful and at times harrowing poem based on Nigel Parry’s family history of relations serving in World War I. 7:56 is typically too long for a single, Queen found that out when they first tried to release Bohemian Rhapsody.
