Rogue Wave: Electro “Morning”

It might be the fact that I like songs titled “Good Morning” (see Kanye West and Chamillionaire‘s tracks for reference), but its most likely because I’ve been dying for some new Rogue Wave. Their last album Asleep At Heaven’s Gate easliy won me over with the band’s brand of melodic indie rock. Stand out track “Lake Michigan” even was selected for a Zune ad and more recently for “Up In The Air” commercials (I still need to see that movie).

In anticipation of Rogue Wave’s new album, Permalight, the band let loose the first single, “Good Morning (The Future)”. The effort is much different that material from …Heaven’s Gate in that its relatively danceable, electro-pop. The new wave elements added are a welcome addition and signal the growth of the band.

What do you think? Do you like the new Rogue Wave sound?

If you’re in Atlanta, GA on March 8th, you can see Zach Rogue and company at The Loft for $14. After seeing their great set at Lollapalooza ’08, I’m hopeful that I can attend as well.

Pre-order Rogue Wave – Permalight here. For some reason, vinyl is a dollar cheaper.
