German heavy rockers Wedge stream a music video for the second single »Across The Water« taken from the upcoming full-length album, »Like No Tomorrow«, to be released on January 15th, 2021 via Heavy Psych Sounds.
Says the band: “Although Wedge’s new album »Like No Tomorrow« is packed with straight forward driving rock songs, there are also a few somewhat mellower tunes with a psychedelic touch. »Across The Water« is one of them.
An electric piano played through a rotating Leslie cabinet, harmonised vocal parts, tremolo and fuzzy tape-delayed backwards guitars are building the dreamy soundscape of this song.
Like many tracks on the new long player »Across The Water« deals with topics rather atypical to the rock genre. Originally written as a song touching on the European Refugee Crisis, it’s telling the imaginary story of crossing over to Europe on a boat. It does that in a naive way a father would talk to his child, preparing it for a rough journey.
In a broader, more metaphorical sense, it is the description of a trip or a daydream, which outlines the feeling of leaving things behind, crossing one’s personal borders and looking towards new horizons. »Across The Water« wants to convey a message of hope.
Although written in pre-Covid times, this theme of escaping a dark place, discovering new ways of life etc. makes us relate while we all are longing for a new beginning out of this paralysing pandemic.”
‘Come and take my hand, we will cross the water, things will be alright once we pass the border…’
