Back in the mid-90s, the Devlins became the latest Irish band to be saddled with that tired old label 'the next U2'. Needless to say it never happened, and instead a series of lacklustre releases led to a significant dip in profile for the Newry-born brothers Colin and Peter. So this new album badly needs to make an impact, which probably explains why Waves is by far the most upbeat and immediate collection they've made to date. In place of the low-key acoustic strummings of the past, we get fast, urgent pop songs with a melancholic tinge, perfectly typified by the dynamic new single 'Sunrise'. The Devlins' fourth full-length is designed for lovesick dreamers. Is it any wonder their music has been popping up in such dark-tinged productions as HBO's Six Feet Under ("Waiting") or Mike Nichols' Oscar-nominated Closer ("World Outside," also from 1997's Waiting)? A similar sense of longing permeates the entire moody, melodic enterprise. Colin, who also handles guitar duties, is joined by brother Peter on bass and Guy Rickarby on drums. Based in Dublin, the Devlins don't sound like any other Irish group that comes to mind (although they do resemble a few Scottish ones, like the Blue Nile ). At times on Waves, however, they evoke another notable sibling duo, New Zealand's Finn Brothers (Neil and Tim from Split Enz and Crowded House), but their sound is smoother, more subdued. Nearly all the songs here are full or rich imagery and even the up-tempo numbers seem to have a dreamy quality.
