"Golden waves is an album about experiential flow, and the many forms in which it can be enjoyed. In the winter of 2021 a series of heavy storms hit the south west of England, in their wake came lines of swell that broke upon the coastline of Cornwall in a joyful rhythm. During that time I went out each day searching for waves with my surfboard. As the sun set the light would often reflect golden across the water and the lines of arriving swell. After the surf, and with visions of those golden waves still playing in my mind I recorded a series of late night piano improvisations. This album is a collection of my favourite moments from these sessions." - Tom Adams

Golden Waves is our second instrumental LP with UK singer songwriter, vocalist, pianist and producer Tom Adams. A follow up to the 2019 critically acclaimed record 'Particles', this album features a set of 10 tracks blending Adams' delicate piano playing with a simple yet stunning layering of aetherial instrumentation including his unique falsetto vocals, subtle electronics, electric guitar and percussion. The result is a wash of sound influenced equally by modern-classical piano playing and post-rock / ambient groups such as Sigur Rós and A Winged Victory for the Sullen. With Golden Waves, Adams shows that he continues to be one of the most innovative voices in the scene.
