Limited vinyl LP pressing. 2016 release. Dan Boeckner (Wolf Parade, Handsome Furs, Divine Fits) has announced the debut album for his band Operators, titled Blue Wave. Formed in 2013, the band features Boeckner on vocals, guitar, and synths and is joined by New Bomb Turks and Divine Fits drummer, Sam Brown, and electro-wiz, Devojka. Produced by Graham Walsh (METZ, Alvvays, Viet Cong), much of Blue Wave was recorded in a middle of nowhere 1850s-vintage barn in southern Ontario. Blue Wave follows the release of EP1, an upbeat, aggressively melodic collection of synth-driven pop songs which gave us a taste of what was to come with the band. After a length of time on the road with the likes of Future Islands, New Pornographers and more, the band's sound evolved from an analog post-punk project to a more live, punked-out sound, with Boeckner finding himself often strapped back into his guitar. The first single, 'Cold Light', demonstrates the beautiful melding of both worlds.
