Published Sep 06, 2019Hamilton unit Basement Revolver have announced they are returning with a new mini-effort. Titled Wax and Digital, the six-song EP will arrive on October 18 via Sonic Unyon.
For a taste of what's in store, Basement Revolver have already unloaded the EP's title track. In a statement, singer Chrisy Hurn said the following of "Wax and Digital":
"Wax and Digital" is about me and my husband, the music that we love together, and how that music has shaped our relationship. In a broader sense it is about how culture informs our lives — even though culture changes rapidly and is temporary, we will always have certain things to hold on to, like music, to look back on and feel sentimental about. I hope that people take away a sense of nostalgia within their own lives, from the things that have helped them to fall in love, or that people think about the things that they have lost, but with thankfulness. Life is a crazy mess, but it's beautiful and confusing and poetic, may we never forget the things that help us to make some sense of it.

The EP follows Basement Revolver's 2018 full-length Heavy Eyes. Speaking of the new record as a whole, a press release explains, "With her mind on her upcoming marriage, Hurn wrote this collection of songs in a period of change. The EP looks back at her religious upbringing that she has — for the most part — since left behind, and gazes ahead at the person she hopes to become."
The Wax and Digital also finds the group growing from a trio into a four-piece, now consisting of Hurn, bassist Nimal Agalawatte, drummer Brandon Munro and newly acquired second guitarist Jonathan Malström.
