WAVELESS have been touring the DIY circuit of damp basements and abandoned warehouses for the last three years. Cutting their teeth as a fastpaced punk band, Waveless has shifted into something that is dense and buzzy, and also melodic and melancholy. The trio—composed of Dustin McChesney, Hannah Kathleen, and Jared Sather—take notes from bands like Hüsker Dü, Sonic Youth, and the Pixies, capturing the energy and sound of the underground as they reshape it. Waveless self-released their first tape in 2014, but with the aid of Lou Barlow (Sebadoh, Dinosaur Jr.), they re-released it on vinyl through Joyful Noise Recordings in February 2017. Their sophomore effort Spirit Island was released on Vancouver’sDeranged Records in 2016. On their new album As One More Folded Paper Crane, Waveless are at a high watermark in songwriting, synthesizing their DIY ethos with a studio curiosity that has them incorporating more deliberate instrumentation over the wash of feedback and chaos.
