Say hello to Great Waves , a young band out of the Pacific Northwest with both youth and gravitas. Youth + Gravitas = Does Not Compute, most of the time, but Great Waves pulls it off. Lead songstress has a voice that invites comparisons to the Cranberries’ Dolores O’Riordan, with a brassy Irish sustain that doesn’t quit. QRO loves this band, having done not one , but two interviews, and a review of their last EP Blue Blood . But don’t take our word for it- the plucky band won the EMP Sound Off! (an elite battle of the bands competition) all on their own. Have a listen to "Sleepers" off their latest EP At The Bottom Of The Well and listen to more at their Bandcamp .
