"If you’re reading this: clean out your car. You know the one. There’s Styrofoam and plastic littering your passenger seat. While you’re at it, attack the cups and dishes surrounding your room. They’re caked in goop and dust and you might be too. External change requires internal pressure.

Nobody knows this more than Jacob Scott, frontperson and unintentional bandleader of Waving. They’ve been inching towards the release of the debut EP Binary Masquerade since fall 2017. It’s here, after re-recording sessions more than once, bouts of existential dread, and interruptions that come from playing bass in the band that introduced them to some of their closest collaborators. (That band, Equipment, shares them, Jake Pachasa, and Nick Stoup. Jessiah Trevino, not from Equipment, plays bass in this band. They know it’s a lot to unpack.)

Most of the EP was written while Equipment was on tour dissecting their own faux pas and failures. Waving’s version of this internal strife results in chunky power pop about changing identity and the slippery warping of memory (“After the Fact”), as well as the twinkling splendor of the Big Apple being a pretty-okay replacement for Philadelphia (“New New York”). Jacob even imagines themself hooked up to machines and monitors while gentle acoustics propel them through a second opinion of their psyche (“Every Good Reason”). A thought experiment sparked from friendship and the natural rhythm of the road, Binary Masquerade shows how imagination and determination meet in the middle to blaze a new trail forward." -James Cassar
