London four piece Kid Wave have released a new video for their excellent slice of summer wooze Shelley which was originally released as a single on Battle Worldwide Recordings in late July.
Sadly the video comes just a little too late after the long summer days intended for a track like Shelley. Nonetheless the song transports you back there with a suitably hazy surf themed video. The blurred time lapse photography on the surfers and the cascading ocean waves work brilliantly with the tracks fuzzy reverbed vocals and guitars.
Kid Wave have barely been around a year but have already notched up support slots for the likes of Poolside and China Rats. With an impressive performance at the Great Escape Festival in Brighton behind them, if they continue with this run of form you can expect them to be one of the young bands making waves (get it?) at the end of 2013.
