Wavves returns to share the first new music from the band since 2017. “Sinking Feeling” finds the band revitalized, turning existential dread into an infectious three-minute pop-punk cut in the way only Wavves can. The song, a first taste of a forthcoming release, is a result of the band coming together with musician and producer Dave Sitek of TV on the Radio who helped them fully realize the track after workshopping the song in a series of now-abandoned studio sessions.
Speaking on the song, Nathan Williams says: “Sinking Feeling is a song about a wave of depression that keeps coming back. its that sinking feeling that drags you down and no matter what you do or where you go it follows you.”
“Sinking Feeling” marks Wavves’ return to Fat Possum Records and is the first offering of new music since their 2017 album, You’re Welcome. The track also arrives after Consequence of Sound named them one of the 100 Best Pop Punk Bands of all time.
