ON THE WANE - Share First Single From Upcoming Album

Oscillating between dream gaze and power gaze fusion, Ukraine's On The Wane brings us their new full album entitled Schism, slated for release on 20th November, preceded by the first single "Human Race". On the Wane is Daria Maksimova (bass, vocals), Anna Lyashok (drums, vocals), Eugene Voitov (guitar, synth), and Eli Demyanenko (guitar). Together, the four-piece have become a smooth cohesive force in the shoegaze, neo-gothic and noise rock realm.
Daria Maksimova explains about the track: "Mankind as a race is quite an absurd thing. We strive to survive but we are killing ourselves. We're beautiful and ugly, lovely and cruel but, anyway, we are not infinite."
In early 2017, the band recorded 10 tracks that would become the full-length album Schism at the studio of the Kyiv-based band Sinoptik (winners of the worldwide music competition Global Battle of the Bands 2016) and under the direction of sound engineer Dima Afanasyev-Gladkykh (a.k.a. Sinoptik).
Drummer/vocalist Anna Lyashok comments: "For me this album is a transitional state, the first step on the way to something higher. We put a lot of deep thoughts and feelings into this release. A lot of work has been done. This is definitely the best we ever did, and I can only hope that the next release will be even cooler."
On The Wane formed in early 2014, influenced by 1980s alternative rock icons such as Sonic Youth, The Cure, Joy Division, The Pixies and Bauhaus, as well as shoegaze giants My Bloody Valentine, Slowdive, Cocteau Twins, and Ringo Deathstarr. They rented a garage, went into debt by buying guitar amplifiers, drums and a line, and settled comfortably in the garage until autumn. Give a listen to "Human Race" in the player below. Link
