Ghost Wave are one of those rare new bands that already knows exactly what they want. The last time we heard this much rookie talent from Auckland, New Zealand, it came in the form of The Naked & Famous, and we all know how that turned out (well. Very well.). On debut single “Sunsetter,” The Wave set their sights high and aim straight for anthem status, constructing two and half minutes of sunkissed 70’s bliss around a massive Dandy Warhols Lick that hides in the crosshairs of Deerhunter and Tame Impala.
