OK WAIT, a Hamburg-based trio, is an experimental instrumental band that creates a unique blend of music that defies genre boundaries. With their latest album SIGNAL (releasing 30 June), the band takes their sound to new heights, incorporating elements of noise rock, shoegaze, doom, and black metal to create an intense and emotional listening experience.
SIGNAL is a departure from traditional post-rock, with the band experimenting with a raw and abrasive sound that is both beautiful and terrifying. With the help of acclaimed producer Peter Voigtmann (THE OCEAN, Ex-HEADS.), mixing by Scott Evans (KOWLOON WALLED CITY) and mastering by Magnus Lindberg (CULT OF LUNA), the album‘s sound is expertly crafted and expertly executed.
The album features nine diverse tracks that showcase the band‘s dynamic range and versatility. Each song is a journey in itself, with complex arrangements and intricate melodies that keep the listener engaged from start to finish. The band‘s commitment to pushing the boundaries of instrumental music is evident in every note, and SIGNAL is a testament to their dedication to creating something truly unique. This multifaceted originality is immediately obvious in our live-session video premiere which includes the monumental ‘Horses’, the screaming ‘Switch’ and the soothing ‘Mantra’.
The band comment:
“This live session was a first for us, including our videographer Peter Ahlers. To be brutally honest, we didn’t have a lot of time neither for planning nor execution, but figured that the music will speak for itself, as it always does. Imagine how happy we were when we saw the pictures! We hope that it gives people a taste of what our live shows are like, but they shouldn’t expect a pizza break.”
