Waves Under Water - Serpents And The Tree
Electro First time we got acquaintance with Waves Under Water where when we reviewed their album slice called 'A short presentation of' back in April. A couple of months have passed and we are now ready to eat the whole cake in the form of an album called 'Serpents and the Tree'.

It's an album filled with a sort of dark and sweet electro pop that very much focus on Angelica's voice. The music is well composed and even though it don't go crazy of exploring new grounds, it's filled with nice melodies and does its job of lifting forward the vocals with great success. Angelica's voice is great, every now and then it though sound a bit forced, but nevertheless generally it's is as lovely as a midsummer night.

In the album preview we got to listen to "Serpents and the Tree", "Winter Garden" and "Nothing More", of course all of them are in this full-length, but I've found some new favourites like "Thirsty", "Because She Is Immortal" and my overall favourite "Still Here". It's one of those albums that manage to keep the quality all through the whole piece and I'm actually quite impressed with this debut album. Well done!
