Continuing to tease their next body of work, The Ninth Wave have shared anthemic new’un ‘Maybe You Didn’t Know’.
“The song is about finding comfort in the uncomfortable and being able to hide yourself behind an overbearing and engulfing undefined fear.” Hadyn Park-Patterson explains. “The first verse of the song comes from daydreaming. I was out walking on a day that the rain that had been unrelenting until it briefly subsided and made it possible to get out and go for a wander. I was staring at a burn that was flowing much more forcefully than it usually would. The frantic and panicked movement of the water reminded me of a time that I was in the middle of a fox-hunting-sabotage. The fox was darting across the field just beyond where I was standing and the blood thirsty hounds were bolting fast right behind it. The water reminded me of this fox and the panic with which it ran. Standing in the middle of the road with my eyes and thoughts lost in the babble of the water, I couldn’t help but feel an affinity with the fox as I imagined the burn bursting its banks and the water gushing out and striking me up off of the ground. The feeling of fear and contentment about this situation were in equilibrium.”
Accompanied by a new vid directed by Rianne White and described by the band as “a surreal, yet cohesive Tokyo Drift dream”, check it out below.
