Nikki & The Waves – Online Chess

Nikki Milla, Tom Spencer and Tom Want are Nikki & The Waves. They’re a Liverpool-based band that released its first EP Look How Blue The Night Looks in 2018. Four years and more than a handful of tracks later, their second EP is coming up. Entitled Songs To Play Tennis To, it’ll be out in April. All six tracks on it were recorded in just two days, and produced by Joel Patchett (King Krule, The Orielles and Billy Ocean).

Talking to online magazine Bido Lito, the band say the EP shows their more playful side. Both musically and lyrically. It represents something of a love letter to pop, R&B and funk and the songs are about genuinely mundane things.

Online Chess is the EP’s first single. An infectious track built around a squelching bass sound, simple but effective trombone notes and some fine Rhodes piano.
