The Ninth Wave get festive on us with a cover of The Pogues’ Love You Till The End. In a departure from The Ninth Wave’s trademark brand of dark, introspective post-punk, instead leaning into their pop sensibilities. A track from the Post-MacGowan Pogues canon, Haydn Park-Patterson’s emotive vocals carry the track into a soaring synth hook. The accompanying video sees Haydn and bassist / vocalist Millie Kidd play with religious symbolism on the streets of their home city of Glasgow.
Recorded and produced by the band, Love You Till The End follows The Ninth Wave’s recent singles Sometimes The Silence Is Sweeter and A Wave Goodbye To The People Who Said I’d Win, which garnered support from the likes of BBC Radio 1 and NME. With the duo recently named one of Amazing Radio’s Tips for 2019.
Speaking about the track, the band say:
“This year has been the busiest we’ve had so far – we recorded an album in the summer and we’ve been very lucky to play in some of the places that we have this year. We decided to make this cover the final thing we put out this year because The Pogues aren’t exactly like our band but still capture emotion in the same way. We did the whole thing in a couple of days – we recorded it all one night in our studio and then it was mixed by Dan who we’ve worked with since our first releases.”
The remainder of 2018 will see The Ninth Wave play their biggest headline show to date at Saint Luke’s, Glasgow, while the band gear up to unleash a fresh collection of material in 2019.
