Track of the day #381: The Ninth Wave – New Kind of Ego

New Kind of Ego‘ is the first single taken from The Ninth Wave‘s forthcoming EP ‘Never Crave Attention’. The Glasgow based post-punk quartet’s latest single has already been championed by Huw Stephens on Radio 1. ‘New Kind Of Ego’ is a brazen, explosive ball of energy and its shout-y vocals give a sense of urgency throughout, including its extremely catchy vocals. The track has its roots firmly set in more powerful, dance-based post-punk and could be likened to White Lies as well as at a push Editors. It’s unique though and I could imagine it would go down brilliantly live, which is all well and good because The Ninth Wave are touring with Lucia throughout May with a few festival slots including Live at Leeds and The Great Escape.
