Rogue Wave’s all over my radar lately

Rogue Wave has been popping up in simply the most delightful places for me in recent days.

First, over Christmas my brother got Season One of the Heroes tv show on DVD so we fed our addiction like crack, watching as many in a row as we could stay awake for (and then having really freaky dreams — at least I did). In the very first episode, they used the Rogue Wave song “Eyes” to great effect, and I was struck afresh by what a lovely little 2:28 wisp of a song it is. It was looping in my head all day.

Birds pass by to tell me that I’m not alone . . .”

Eyes – Rogue Wave

Then yesterday I saw that the fabulous Daytrotter (which seriously may be one of the best and most innovative DIY music sites out there today) has a new live session with Rogue Wave, including a performance of their unreleased song “Desperate.” It’s a tune that makes me feel like I am floating underwater and looking up at the sun filtering in.

Listen to/download the rest of the Daytrotter set here. Rogue Wave also just announced that they will be supporting Nada Surf on the upcoming European Tour from February 20-March 5th.

  • Ahh, Rogue Wave. One of my best friends was married about 2 months ago and he and his new wife danced to “Eyes.” I love that song.

  • yes! i’ve always believed “Eyes” to be rogue wave’s best song… and i’ve always wondered why it never got passed around more. this “Desperate” is interesting- a very uncharacteristic sound for them. i like it though.

  • Yea it is weird to see Rogue Wave along with Band of Horses on a lot of the Microsoft Zune adverts. Rogue wave is starting to get some play and pub.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
