Longwave share a brand new single “Dreamers Float Away” along with a playful accompanying lyric video directed by Bill Moldt, a dear friend of the band. Not only have Longwave shared a new single, they have also announced a new album, If We Ever Live Forever, out October 25 via Bodan Kuma Recordings.
“A long time ago, a recording engineer friend told me that he thought that our band made music that sounded happy and sad, at the same time. This song has that,” says Steve Schiltz, guitar/vocals of Longwave.
“Dreamers Float Away” is one of my favorite songs on the new Longwave record. It was kind of a sleeper, a song that I wrote that wasn’t immediately popular amongst all 4 of us, but which fought its way to the end,” shares Schiltz. “To me, the song features a lot of the best of the 4 band members…Christian’s bass is melodic and rhythmically interesting, Jason’s drums are creative, but still kind of groovy, Shannon found some really beautiful guitar sounds as usual, and I even enjoy my vocals and lyrics here.”
Longwave is out with Blue October on a North American fall tour including a date at Webster Hall in NYC on Friday, November 15.
