about

Arid Wave Southampton, UK

Formed in Southampton in late 2013, Arid Wave take the grungey sounds of the 1990's and give them a venomous modern edge.
With their buzzsaw guitars, frantic drums, grimey basslines and wretched, angsty vocals, Arid Wave are a band best experienced live.

Track Name: Outskirts
The Law's back, it's coming to get me
I'm wounded, and now I'm bleeding
But I don't care, go ahead boy make my day
It's too late so I seek shelter on The Outskirts
So baron and deadly
But I'm not alone to take a stand, as I go down swinging with a gun in my hand

And Baby if you don't mind it
We're going down, we're going down
And if it is just to try it
We're going down, to the outskirts of the city

As I crawl on my knees towards victory, I suddenly stop
And I see a dark figure standing in my way like a knight
He said:
Hey son it's your lucky day
I've got a .45 I want to play a game
This gun takes 6 but you can take away 5
This outlaw is wanted dead or alive.
Are you talking to me?
Just send me on my way and I'll let you be.
Something must've slip in your little brain
The outlaw of the outskirt's the name.
So take yourself and I'll take my own
You better go back to where you belong.
Your reign here is about to end
I'm coming with fire so tell your friends.

And Baby if you don't mind it
We're going down, we're going down
And if it is just to try it
We're going down, to the outskirts of the city
Track Name: The Real Thing
Stars like bullet holes in the night sky
Obscured by cartoon clouds
I want to reach my arms skyward
Pick them up and pull them all down
Your soul is an ocean
I want to dive on in
On second thought I might boat over
Because I forgot how to swim


Do you feel okay?
Well, you look okay

God-sized in your hand
Loving every rule that broke you
God-sized in your hand
Loving every rule that broke you down

I'm worried this is contagious
But you keep saying it's fine
You get a wiggle on the tip of your nose
That moves down your back and to the tip of your spine
Just a word of precaution
You better watch where you tread
Otherwise Cupid's arrow might just miss your heart
And go straight through your head

Do you feel okay?
Well, you look okay

God-sized in your hand
Loving every rule that broke you
God-sized in your hand
Loving every rule that broke you down
