Texas-based bass music trio WAVEDASH is back again with their third single ahead of upcoming debut album. By Any Means is an experimental slice of heaven, rich in production and emotion. Along with the new track, WAVEDASH premiered an official music video ahead of the song’s release. Check out our review of their new single and listen to By Any Means out now.
With massive energy and cinematic riffs, WAVEDASH is bringing a new level to their catalog of releases. By Any Means encapsulates a timeless feeling of experimental electronic music. From the intricacies of sound design to elements of early dubstep, the track positions itself as a gleaming epic testament of musical range.
The music video follows suit, creating a flashing and intense scene of driving down a freeway. Static-colored characters juxtaposed with retro television scenes create an analogous feeling to the track itself. Working together, the cinematic emotion and energy barrels through a listener.
‘By Any Means,’ set apart from WAVEDASH’s other singles
If you laid out each of their releases side-by-side, there may not be much distinction at first glance. But if you look closer, you’d find commonalities in massive synths, glitchy low-frequency resounding bass, and frenetic energy only fit to be served from three 20-something year olds.
By Any Means fits especially well with the first two singles off their album. Both Dummo Loop and Stallions squeeze all of the best features of a WAVEDASH track topped off with an evolved complement of emotion through warped vocals and brass instrumentals. Resulting in a mature and refined sound, the group is leaning in to this next chapter of their careers.
The debut album anticipation continues to climb
After four years in the making, it’s clear WAVEDASH has worked this track to perfection. Ethereal and orbital in nature, By Any Means is a refreshing and nuanced take on today’s experimental bass music. It was also a huge source of inspiration for their upcoming album, World Famous Tour.
“[By Any Means], to us, serves as a stream of consciousness. An apex to the equation and the climax to World Famous Tour. It was the first record written for World Famous Tour, being the original inspiration for crafting an album—it has an undeniable energy that screams ‘keep going,” WAVEDASH reflects.
If this single was only the beginning of their inspiration, the recent Texas high school graduates are well on par to alter the landscape of bass music with their album. Although there’s no date yet set for World Famous Tour, it’s clear they have big things in mind. Listen to By Any Means by WAVEDASH, out on Gud Vibrations now.
