Fire Track: Wavves – “Caviar”

Wavves shares the fourth offering from their forthcoming album Hideaway. “Caviar,” the final single to be released ahead of the album coming out this Friday, is a ballad as indebted to 60’s doo-wop as it is to modern pop rock, and is the kind of song that only Wavves could deliver.

Of the new song Williams says, “‘Caviar’ is about about two selfish people in a shitty relationship unwilling to change. A bad situation that continues to get worse but you stay anyways. You’ll see this theme of ‘change’ and ‘comfort’ throughout the whole record.”

Hideaway is out July 16th via Fat Possum Records. Across its brief but impactful nine tracks, the album, produced by Dave Sitek of TV on the Radio, is about what happens when you get old enough to take stock of the world around you and realize that no one is going to save you but yourself, and even that might be a tall order.

You can pre-order the new album HERE.
