Indie Rock Band and Siblings superWAV Release “aTYPICAL”

The Austria-Brooklyn based indie rock bands new EP is a rock showpiece

The alternative rock band superWAV is comprised of the talented brother-sister pairing of Anne and Volker Wichmann. Both are phenomenally talented in their own right, but together they deliver some solid sounds.

 


Their collective compilations are created with an ocean diving them in fact, something that doesn’t phase the german-born duo. With Anne in Brooklyn and Volker in Austria, they brought their talents together for their latest album, aptly named “aTYPICAL.”

 

 

 

 

 

As a band, superWAV is a compilation of their own individual strengths as artists. Volker is the guitarist while Anne provides the vocals. “Volker sends over his guitar riffs. I arrange them, add the instrumentation and the vocals. Then we send the tracks back and forth, adjusting the arrangement together and working toward a final version,” Anne explains of their process.

 

 

For this latest album though, they did come together in person to complete the project. Volker says, “For aTYPICAL, we decided to actually mix the album together. We physically got together for the final steps. We rented a small place in the Italian Alps for a week, set up a mobile studio and got to work.

 

 

“We wanted the songs to be straightforward, direct and in your face. Basically: Let’s take out everything that the song does not need. Reduce it to pure guts! Yet the theme of archetypes is a complex one, and its exploration is adding a thoughtful layer to the music,”
– Anne Wichmann

 

It was a fun experience for the siblings to get back together after time apart working on individual projects. Volker says, ”It’s so much fun to work together again, and exciting to find new ways of collaborating across such a long distance.

For aTYPICAL it feels like we picked up where RAWJAW (the Wichmanns earlier band in the early 00s) ended – yet finding our own sound of today in every tune.”

The final product is something they wanted to be completely stripped down and raw. “When we started working on aTYPICAL, we were drawn to a raw, more direct, even simpler approach, simpler in the sense of being stripped down. Back to the roots, we wanted to include more of the elements that formed us early on. And it is always interesting to work on a specific concept or topic. So we decided to go for the archetypes,” says Anne. 

 

“We wanted the songs to be straightforward, direct and in your face. Basically: Let’s take out everything that the song does not need. Reduce it to pure guts! Yet the theme of archetypes is a complex one, and its exploration is adding a thoughtful layer to the music,” she adds.

 

 

 

When asked to describe their music, superWAV says they’re guitar-heavy, alternative indie rock influenced by grunge, stoner rock and prog rock. Anne adds for extra comparison, “The Kills meet The White Stripes with a taste of Kyuss.” With aTYPICAL the duo is looking forward to the future and creating more music together.

 

Volker enthusiastically adds that his goals for the future are simple: “to have fun, work on great music, don’t lose your drive and somehow fit it all into your life!”
