“And with Secrets Are Sinister, the band's fourth album out Nov. 11 via Original Signal Recordings, Longwave's ethereal, lush arrangements and floating melodies are getting decidedly epic.”
“...when Steve Schiltz's voice howls and cracks with emotion on the Echo & The Bunnymen-summoning "No Direction," Longwave's passion rings true.”
“Longwave makes music on a large scale, rife with high, chiming guitars, bold basses and choruses meant to ricochet around the far walls of the world’s great arenas. It’s what Coldplay might sound like if they really did rock. You know, if they actually lived up to their title as the next U2.”
“Romantic mood? Hear the undulating, emo-esque "Satellites." For more badass (think ominous intro), check out "Eyes Like Headlights"; the electric guitar is razor sharp and, partnered with the easy-to-swallow singing of frontman Steve Schiltz, proves a top track.”
“Hold your ponies, because Longwave is BACK. I just heard their new record (on the Original Signal record label... who?) and it's really good! I'm serious! Think big shoegaze rock with lots of guitar hooks and really good vocals.”
“Secrets Are Sinister expands on the band’s trademark sound: atmospheric, arena-sized guitars still build to an epic swell while the band’s penchant for dreamy landscapes now gives way to an equally dynamic but louder, noisier, and more driving sensibility.”
“The band’s party started in 1999. The train kept rolling, and Longwave continued to search for the spirit of radio. Here in 2008, we are proud to present Secrets Are Sinister - a beautiful blend of U2, Radiohead, Muse, and a dash of 80s memorabilia.”
