SHALLOW WATERS – SINGLE REVIEW

Shallow Waters – Wake Up To What Is Real 
Shallow Waters - Wake Up To What Is Real


Release Date: Out Now

There are some tracks that draw you back in, time and time again, and that can certainly be said of new single ‘Wake Up To What Is Real’ by Manchester Fuzz-Rock trio Shallow Waters. From the rumbling bass notes that begin this song with malevolence and unstoppable power to the power house drums that blast you from your feet, this track has something siren-like about it. With the baggy attitude of the Stone Roses, ManBreak or Kasabian swaggering through the vocals but riding atop a black dragon that sounds like Fu Manchu or Them Crooked Vultures, Shallow Waters are channelling something primal, something as old as time but with that sweet, sweet allure. I feel like four minutes spent in the sweaty, heaving, writhing presence of this track performed live might just be enough to cleanse the soul of the worst kind of person. Like, maybe a Tory. It’s just that powerful.


Live Dates:

9th December – The Bread Shed, Manchester w/The Vulnerables
