The Ninth Wave deliver new single 'I'm Only Going To Hurt You'

With their highly-anticipated new EP set to land at the end of next month, The Ninth Wave have now unveiled the next cut to be lifted from their upcoming release.

The new single 'I'm Only Going To Hurt You' was produced by The Horrors' Faris Badwan, and follows on from the collection's title-track in previewing their new EP 'Happy Days!', which is due out on the 31st July via Distiller Records.

Speaking about the new offering, the band's Haydn Park-Patterson said, “'I’m Only Going To Hurt You', the second single from our upcoming 'Happy Days!' EP, is a song that has existed in so many forms that it is hard to recognise the original demo and the final recording as the same song. It started out life in the form of one of Haydn’s poems, 'My Severed Heart', from which the pre chorus and chorus lyrics were taken. Since then it’s been dragged through different arrangements, keys and styles until we almost decided to scrap it. It wasn’t until Calum, Kyalo and Millie reimagined the backbone of the song that things fell into place. The main rhythmic elements of this song were made on Millie’s Elektron Digitakt, using field recordings of scrap bits of metal that surrounded the studio.

“The song itself is centred around an internal conflict faced after realising the difficulties of a relationship that seemed to be damaged even before it was allowed to flourish.”
