"Dead Waves captures an indelible element of primal fear, perfectly balancing hypnotic fractured beauty and raw simmering menace" - Under The Radar

"Every Dead Waves release has been compelling, but it feels like they have finally found their true sound. As quiet as this release is, it never comes across as passive or toothless. This music feels as important as it does ethereal. It sounds like ghosts at the edge of the firelight trying to tell us something. Are we listening?" - Burning Ambulance

"A haunting, heartbreaking experience" - Northern Transmissions

"Excuse me as I look at the clouds in the sky! Excuse me as I wonder about my dreams becoming a reality! Excuse me as I listen to the new DEAD WAVES song “Wake Up in the Night” which is a dream unto itself. This is the kind of tune that makes me want to stare out into Venice Beach sunsets and see how far the ocean goes. DEAD WAVES’ new album Abandoned Children comes out on May 27th and if you like being plugged into your alternative state of mind this record is for you! Join us as we celebrate life and premiere their new song!" - CVLT Nation

"Minimized percussion and bass, spectral guitar drones, and pained, muted vocals swirling around the album's seven haunted tracks... Ranges in sound from the early bedroom slowcore recordings of The Antlers to doom-metal mainstays Thou's unplugged 'inconsolable' EP." - Flood Magazine
