About four or five years ago we (Maybeshewill) and And So I Watch You From Afar were on tour together playing tiny little shows around the UK. We must have played with hundreds of support bands over the course of those two weeks and the intervening years, but one really stuck with us, and we’re really excited that they’re joining the Robot Needs Home ranks for their debut LP…
Southampton’s Waking Aida make instrumental music that skips between something resembling post-rock and something in the not too distant vicinity of math-rock, for want of better lazy genre comparisons. Importantly their music is as ridiculously fun and totally, totally uplifting. It has a personality all of it’s own, and we’re proud that they’re part of our little family.
Their debut LP, Eschaton, will be released through Robot Needs Home on Monday 2nd June through all good digital retailers and in physical form from us and the band. They’ll be heading out on tour immediately after for some special release shows around the UK, as well as performing at the mighty ArcTanGent and Handmade Festivals.
