The Wave Pictures


Prolific, gritty garage folk trio building on the fiercely literate tradition of the Smiths, Billy Bragg, Billy Childish, and the Mountain Goats.

The Wave Pictures unveiled a string of self-released albums before being signed to Moshi Moshi records, their first being ‘Just Watch Your Friends Don’t Get You’. Their label debut was ‘Sophie’, released in 2006, which was followed up by ‘Instant Coffee Baby’ in 2008 and then ‘If You Leave It Alone’ the following year. The subsequently released an album a year until 2014; a year they skipped before releasing ‘Great Big Flamingo Burning Moon’ in 2015.

Among their many compilation appearances was ‘Moshi Moshi Singles Compilation’, in which they contributed Bruce Springsteen tribute ‘Play Some Pool’. The band have collaborated with the likes of Darren Hayman of Hefner, French duo Herman Dune, California’s Daniel Johnston and New York’s Jeffrey Lewis.
