Song of the Week: “Which Wave?” by Sun Studies

by Douglas Cowie on 10 May 2019

Each Friday I pick a song–new, old, borrowed, blue–that’s been on my mind and in my ears, and write a short post about it.

This is “Which Wave?” by Sun Studies:

I’ve loved Reid Johnson’s songwriting and voice since I first encountered his band Schooner several years ago. I wrote a review of the first Schooner album, Hold on Too Tight, for The PhiLLer and reviewed a couple of other releases both there and on this site (search Schooner on the bottom right and you’ll find those reviews). Anyway, I’ve been looking forward to the release of this more stripped-back project for a while now, and here it is. Listen to that voice, both rich and fragile, an echo of Roy Orbison. Go to Bandcamp to buy the album and listen to seven beautiful songs.
