KEXP Premiere: Rogue Wave - Delusions of Grand Fur

KEXP Premiere
Jim Beckmann

There should be no misconception about it, Delusions of Grand Fur is a gorgeous return to form for Oakland band Rogue Wave - not that they really ever left it. For their sixth release, though, frontman Zach Rogue and his longtime collaborator Pat Spurgeon have returned to self-producing and self-recording in their own studio, essentially composing all the while. The result is an invigorated, gloriously sunny set of songs that emphasize Rogue Wave's greatest strengths - their shimmering pop melodies and Zach Rogue's heavenly voice soaring in the upper registers.

Delusions of Grand Fur will be released next Friday, on April 29th, through Easy Sound, but you can listen to the entire album right now during this premiere:
