hmv's Next Big Thing... #96 BlackWaters

Every Wednesday we recommend a brand new artist who we think you're going to love. This week we bring you Libertines approved indie upstarts BlackWaters...

 

Who Are They?

BlackWaters hail from Guildford and consist of singer Max Tanner, guitarist David Carpenter, bassist Ollie Franklin and drummer James Watkins. They're all just 18, but already causing quite a stir in the live arena. It was here where they caught the eye of The Libertines' Carl Barat who has produced their debut single 'So Far Out. 

 

Who Do They Sound Like?

This is shonky indie punk played at breakneck speed, there's obviously a lot of The Libertines in there, but early Clash, Pixies and Arctic Monkeys in the mix as well. 

 

Why Should I Be Excited?

Because as debut singles go it's pretty damn good. 

 

Can I Hear Something?

Absolutely. Their debut single 'So Far Out' is below for you.
