The Skinny: Gainesville, FL’s Wavelets recently signed to Tiny Engines for the release of the quintet’s debut full-length, Athaletics, on 12″ vinyl and digital formats in late Fall. Since its 2009 inception, Wavelets has self-released a handful of digital EPs and singles, as well as a 7" split with hometown brethren, Senders.
Recorded by Matt Finch and Ryan Williams at Black Bear Studios (Hot Water Music, Chris Wollard, City Of Ships), Athaletics traverses nine tracks of somersaulting, emotionally charged indie rock (let’s just call it emo) that initially feels a little out of place in relation to the tuneful, gruff punk that Gainesville and its bearded denizens have become known for.
