Andrew Bishop, a versatile musician hailing from Vancouver, has established himself as a prominent figure in the city’s pop music scene over the past decade. He’s contributed his talents as a guitarist to bands like Alex Little & the Suspicious Minds and Twin River, while crafting country-infused solo tracks under the name White Ash Falls. Now, he’s embarked on a new musical journey with WAASH, merging his prolific songwriting skills with a passion for expansive shoegaze soundscapes, marking both a culmination of his musical career and a fresh start. Although WAASH initially began as a solo project, it has evolved into a full-fledged live band.
The WAASH self-titled EP, anticipated on November 20th, consists of five meticulously crafted tracks that showcase Andrew‘s departure from his conventional songwriting process. Instead of relying on the guitar, he explored beats and basslines as starting points for his compositions. This approach allowed him to delve into minute details, crafting lyrics and melodies that intricately fit each song, including “There’s Never Enough Voices.” Despair and confusion swirl in the new single, which is about trying to come to an understanding about the intentions within your actions and the realization of your past mistakes.

The EP’s sonic foundations were laid during sessions with Andrew‘s Suspicious Minds bandmates at Afterlife Studios and further refined at the Hive studio on Vancouver Island with co-producer Colin Stewart. Back home in East Vancouver, Andrew added ethereal keyboards, harmonies by Louise Burns, and perfected the EP’s reverb-soaked ambiance.
