Monroe-based indie rock band Waveform is made up of dual songwriters Jarett Denner and Dan Poppa. Last week, the band issued their newest full length, Shooting Star in collaboration with West Hartford’s Funnybone Records.
Shooting Star is easily Waveform’s strongest and most mature sounding release to date. Like their earlier work, the songs on Shooting Star channel 90s revivalist indie rock for the Bandcamp generation. Standouts like “Honey” and “Hazel” dabble in dreamy slowcore, grungy distortion, and emotive intonations reminiscent of the perpetually rainy-day material coming out of the Pacific Northwest in the latter half of the 90s. A significant growth in all faucets of musical appeals, the rotation of songwriting duties between both artists allow for an interesting blend of simultaneous convergence and divergence in emotional and dynamic subtleties.
