Rogue Wave

Like many others, I took the opportunity as 2004 came to an end to compile my top 10 albums of the year. It appears however that one slipped though the net totally: Rogue Wave – Out of the Shadow. I first heard Rogue Wave mentioned on a review at Delusions of Adequacy. After grabbing the album, I queued it up in my media player, but it never got a proper listen.

Rogue Wave sound much like The Shins, with the singer sharing that distinctive high pitched meandering voice of James Mercer and the band as a whole manages to nail the playful indie pop vibe perfectly. That upbeat feeling runs throughout the album, albeit toned down slightly in more introspective but no less beautiful tracks like ‘Kicking The Heart Out’ and ‘Falcon Settles Me’. Rogue Wave’s Zakk Rogue has a voice which you won’t forget quickly and will run back to time and time again. Out of the Shadow is released on Sub Pop records and deserves your attention.
