LA-based indie pop outfit, Dark Waves, fronted by multi-instrumentalist and singer/songwriter Nick Long, have released a music video for new single, "I Don't Wanna Be In Love". Recently featured on the CW hit series, Vampire Diaries, "I Don't Wanna Be In Love," has taken off, starting an online craze and reaching over 581,000 streams online.
'I Don't Wanna Be In Love' is the follow up single to Dark Waves' debut hit single, "The Heartbeat The Soul,"which gained attention from critics and fans alike after garnering almost 2 Million streams on Spotify following the release of Dark Waves' self-titled inaugural EP release on September 30th, 2014.
On the inspiration behind the new song, Long reveals, "I wrote this song [I Don't Wanna Be In Love] toward the end of a relationship. I didn't realize how weighed down I felt until after it ended, but I knew something wasn't right. It made me sad to feel disconnected from someone that I once felt so close to." He continues, "The song is basically me taking a look at my situation and being honest with myself about how I felt."
Both "The Heartbeat The Soul" and "I Don't Wanna Be In Love" will be included on Dark Waves' forthcoming full-length debut, set for a 2015 release. The album has already received critical appraisal from many different media sources, including:
"...intimate, meticulously produced synth-pop...Long joins electro-romantics such as
the Neighbourhood, Sir Sly, Maudlin Strangers and Jaymes Young, afloat in the
unsettling gloomy currents of love and longing." - Buzzbands.la
