Waters with Clap Your Hands Say Yeah: Tues 12/06

Who: Waters with Clap Your Hands Say Yeah
When: Tuesday, December 6
Where: Mr. Smalls

WATERS is the new project from former Port O’Brien front man, Van Pierszalowski. Out In The Light is a collection of songs with fuzzy, pealing guitars, crashing drums and sometimes soaring, sometimes-languid melodies. Even before the album was released, it had already garnered favorable press from media outlets RCRD LBL, Stereogum, and Spinner.

According to Van, “The record is about waking up. It is about getting out of a situation that seems endless, and realizing you’re not too old to make dramatic and sudden changes in your life. It is about starting over.” This makes sense due to the fact that Van’s previous band, Port O’ Brien,  had recently disbanded in 2010. Needing a break from music and touring, Van went on a worldwide journey that began in Oslo, Norway. Next he spent time in Alaska and California then onwards to Brooklyn. Finally, Van ended up back in Norway where he now felt inspired and ready to write music again. That sometimes happens after one gets to swim in fjords and work on salmon boats over the course of a year. Van gathered together a group of local musicians which eventually resulted in WATERS’ album, Out In the Light.

WATERS will be opening for Clap Your Hands Say Yeah this coming Tuesday at Mr. Smalls. This will be a killer show that you’ll regret missing if you don’t go. Seriously.
