Wildcard (week 31):
Kula Shaker – Waves

Kula Shaker have reformed before, but things are different now. This time around, all four original members of the band’s classic line-up reunited for the first time since 1999. Yes indeed, keyboard wizard Jay Darlington has returned from a decade with Oasis and various Gallaghers. His comeback signals a restoration of the band’s classic sound as well. A very, very welcome return!

Waves is the first single from Kula Shaker’s upcoming 7th studio album. A relentless burst of excitement, it’s an upbeat song of optimism, with a stadium-ready na-na-na part. Unmistakably, it features Darlington’s swirling Hammond organ riffs from the get-go. The track is further powered by the band’s legendary rhythm section, Alonza Bevan (bass) and Paul Winter-Hart (drums). Obviously, the euphoric lyrics are written and sung by front man Crispian Mills.

All in all, this tune brings the band’s best-known hit Hush to mind. It deserves to score big, like the band did so many times in their early years, circa 25 years ago..

This week, Kula Shaker makes Waves on Carte Blanche Music as our new Wildcard. That means it’ll be featured prominently at the top of the blog for a whole week.
