Constantly confused by which is which. Who's better in all yours opinion?
write quirky off kilter indie (with a smidge of folk) with humourously twisted lyrics ('the Sun came in like a pack of orange spaniels' is a reasonable example). Imagine a very British version of the Mountain Goats. Or Something.
Wave Machines are, on the other hand, things used in swimming pools to drown toddlers.
Hope this helps.
I always thought that "sun came in like a pack of orange spaniels" line was SO Mountain Goats.
I quite like the Wave Pictures, pretty good indie-pop albeit nothing life changing. Not heard the Wave Machines at all.
wave pictures , brilliant band
Although I've never seen Machines Live and am DJing when they are playing on Friday so check them there ay!
not heard any Wave Pictures stuff. I can tell you however that Wave Machines are a pretty impressive live band. Saw them at Islington Academy a couple of mondays ago - visually, really interesting (those masks of their faces), and the set was really polished as well. Loved 'Keep The Lights On'.
a wave machine is certainly more useful and more fun than a wave picture. on that basis alone, I will go for wave machines. however, their tunes are good too...keep the lights on and i go i go i go in particular.
