Between Two Waves - The Second Wave

A free 31 song album on 3 volumes, with new indiepop collaborations
See the tracklist for all three volumes below in this email)

How would our favourite bands sound like if they made a song together? Now we know.
We at the small netlabel EardrumsPop have spent a year making a compilation with new, exclusive collaborations between our favourite bands. The main idea is that two bands go together, write a new song, and find a new name for their project.

Some bands have known each other for a long time, other bands found friendship during this project. Some have collaborated face to face, others across borders via email. Several plan to continue working together, so we have basically created a lot of new bands. :-)

Today, the first volume of the compilation is released. Next week, we will share the second and in two weeks, the third will be released.
As usual with our releases, we have a strong visual focus, and the artworks are made by illustrators/artists Sean Mahan (vol A), Featherfin (vol B) and Gemma Cotterell (vol C). The album also features a booklet with interviews and info, made by Graphic designer/illustrator Silja Haddal Mork.

Feel free to share any song on the album..

The subtitle "The Second Wave" means that we have done this once before, in 2009, and the first release is still available for free download from our website.

We are available for questions and interviews at team@eardrumspop.com.

EardrumsPop is a small netlabel, releasing everything we do for free, - based on the love for good, warm and melodic music + good illustration and art. We hope you can help us get the word out about this release, and we will be so happy if you do! Every mention means a lot to us.

Thanks for reading, and hope you will enjoy the music!
