The Ninth Wave Releases New Song “Maybe You Didn't Know”
- Glasgow-based band The Ninth Wave, consisting of Haydn Park-Patterson (guitar, vocals), Millie Kidd (bass, vocals), Kyalo Searle-Mbullu (keys) and Calum Stewart (drums), released a new song “Maybe You Didn't Know” along with a music video via Distiller Records.
The song is their first single of 2021, following “Everything Will Be Fine” released last December.
It was produced by the band themselves. The video was directed by Rianne White.
Haydn Park-Patterson said of the song, “The song is about finding comfort in the uncomfortable and being able to hide yourself behind an overbearing and engulfing undefined fear.”
The band wants their listeners to find comfort in their music. “It’s a cathartic thing for both us and the listeners; we want to help with normalising being emotional and finding comfort within your sadness", the band said.
- Haydn Park-Patterson explained of behind the lyrics, “The first verse of the song comes from daydreaming. I was out walking on a day that the rain that had been unrelenting until it briefly subsided and made it possible to get out and go for a wander. I was staring at a burn that was flowing much more forcefully than it usually would. The frantic and panicked movement of the water reminded me of a time that I was in the middle of a fox-hunting-sabotage. The fox was darting across the field just beyond where I was standing and the blood thirsty hounds were bolting fast right behind it. The water reminded me of this fox and the panic with which it ran. Standing in the middle of the road with my eyes and thoughts lost in the babble of the water, I couldn't help but feel an affinity with the fox as I imagined the burn bursting its banks and the water gushing out and striking me up off of the ground. The feeling of fear and contentment about this situation were in equilibrium.”
