Boston's Wakes aka Tim Oxton unveils latest track "Headlights" ahead of debut LP Feral Youth.


Wakes' debut is set for release through Cardiff's Shape Records and if "Headlights" is anything to go by, it should be a very interesting release at that.

It's easy to skip past an act called Wakes, when your so used to seeing similar names associated to brutal electronic neo-soul/r&b divvy's - so it's a relief to be introducing a breath of fresh air instead. Wakes concocts a wild and care-free mix of lo-fi but entrancing vocals with a typically catchy surf-pop guitar riffs. Don't let it fool you though, Wakes isn't a surf-pop act - far from it actually.

Feral Youth is set for release June 2nd through Shape Records, for a pre-order head over to Bandcamp.
