WAASH Unveils New Single/Video "Frozen"

Vancouver indie/alt musician WAASH (aka Andrew Bishop) has unveiled his new single “Frozen“, alongside a video.

The song, written by Andrew Bishop, Courtney Ewan Hancock & Cody Hiles, is out via Light Organ Records and is another taste of his upcoming self-titled full-length debut ‘WAASH’ (TBA). Buy it here.

Commenting on the track, he said:

“Frozen” was the last track written for the record. Not only was it the last song written, it took many shapes and forms along the way. Initially, I had left the demo pretty stripped down, planning on building it up in the studio. Sometimes you just want to save some of that magic for the moment. James Younger immediately had ideas that would transform the song into what it is today. James had initially tracked electric bass, but we thought it would be fun to try a sequenced synthesiser. As soon as that synth bass was on the track, we knew we were on the right path. I took the song home over the weekend and couldn’t stop working on it. When I returned to the studio the following Monday, the track had taken shape and was ready for vocals. Courtney came down to the studio and we began writing lyrics. The last few pieces came together quickly, leaving us with one of my favourite tracks on the album.”

Andrew Bishop has firmly established himself as a prominent figure in the city’s pop music scene. He’s been a part of various groups, including Twin River, Alex Little & The Suspicious Minds, dwi, and White Ash Falls. Now, he embarks on a new musical journey under the moniker WAASH, merging his prolific songwriting skills with a passion for expansive shoegaze soundscapes.⁠

Despite WAASH’s solo origins, the project has now blossomed into a full live band, with Andrew  joined by an arsenal of his closest long-time collaborators. The group recently made its hometown debut, and more shows are in the works. “I’ve put together a fantastic live band with lots with old friends,” Andrew says. “I think I’ve really got something here.”
