Oakland-based indie rock veterans Rogue Wave just announced that they’re releasing a new album on June 4th. Nightingale Floors is set for release on Vagrant, which marks a new direction in the band, as they called Sub Pop home for most of the 2000s before jumping over to Brushfire for their last two albums. While 2010’s Permalight was a bit disappointing for Rogue Wave aficionados, their new single, “College,” marks a return to the more melodic guitar driven melodies that made Asleep at Heaven’s Gate one of my favorite albums. “College” is a warm, uncomplicated number perfect for listening to on a day like today, where Spring might finally be showing signs of life.
Rogue Wave’s Nightingale Floors comes out June 4th via Vagrant.
