Hayden Calnin Releases Waves

Aussie Singer, songwriter AND producer Hayden Calnin won approval from the masses after the release of his well anticipated two-part album ‘Cut Love Pt. 1 & 2’ saw him gain support from the industry. No stranger to having his music streamed on international TV, the LP still has Hayden in high demand with the artist landing himself syncs on shows Teen Wolf, The Fosters and a finale slot on The Vampire Diaries (oh the perks of famous fans) all within the last six months. Add a sold out London date on his first ever EU/UK tour and Hayden’s success is bitingly obvious… maybe we should all start making two part albums.

Apparently, wowing us twice just wasn’t enough. Hayden is back and ready to (delicately) crash into us with new single ‘Waves’. Listen here

The song, taken from Hayden’s upcoming EP ‘Dirt’ which is due to be released this summer was mixed and mastered by the highly renowned Andrei Eremin, who has worked with artists such as Chet Faker and Miami Horror. ‘Waves’ offers up 3 minutes and 33 seconds of translucent electronica and takes a more serene tone than some of his darker previous work. The track see’s Hayden’s hauntingly serene vocals meander through bars of piano and synthesized harmonies – only reinforcing former comparisons to the likes of Bon Iver and M83. This time however, molded with the pure delicacy of Birdy.

Hayden’s music explores levels deeper than it’s obvious aural pleasure. According to him ‘”Waves’ and the upcoming EP ‘Dirt’ as a whole are an exploration of mental issues in youth and young adults. Your twenties are hard. It’s a time when you feel pressure to become something you may not always feel ready to become and a time that those pressures of not knowing who you are can take a toll on your well being”.

With a fitting title, prepare for the ‘Waves’ of goose-bumps and harmonious chills that await.
