The band was formed in +-2016 to perform at Rocking the Daisies as FOLLOWER after this performance the band took time to rewrite the set and truly become a group. In 2019 we had a private performance at a theatre in Milnerton to perform their debut album SIEN to 120 people. This album is a concept album, side A based on the Sun and side B based on the Moon and the music is written to this push and pull that we find ourselves in.
The concept for the video comes from our external source of inspiration, the ocean. Before the first lockdown we went to the ocean on the last day before lockdown and filmed an entire sunset.
We thought this would be a nice gift to the community, while isolating. We were lucky enough to get the moon chasing the sun in this take. Arno Kruger then edited this with the song and did a great job with this.
‘YGALTSFY’ is the debut single by AGEOFWAVES, from their forthcoming debut album ‘Sien’.
