Glaswegian quartet The Ninth Wave reveal their Martin Barker-directed video for 'New Kind Of Ego', the first single from their forthcoming second EP, 'Never Crave Attention', out on April 20 via Distiller Records.

The Little Indie One To Watch 2018 band have also announced their first UK headline tour for May, including a date at London's Shacklewell Arms on May 16.

Produced by Dan Austin (Massive Attack, Sløtface), ‘New Kind Of Ego’ - which follows last year's debut EP ‘Reformation’ - is an intrinsically 80s post-punk explosion, led by a power pop melody into an electrifying hook reminiscent of The Cure, Interpol, Talking Heads and Arcade Fire.

Led by frontman Haydn Park, the four-piece exhibit a flair for audacious songwriting to convey their malcontented musings, drawing on their own experiences on Glasgow’s music scene and the decrepit state of society.

Speaking about the new single, Haydn says: “‘New Kind Of Ego’ is a dialogue between two people and their insecurities in each other, focusing on the reasons for this lack of trust.”
