It’s refreshing when a group with as long a history as Rogue Wave are willing to continue exploring uncharted territory on their new releases. The Californian four-piece certainly fit this bill on their sixth album, Delusions of Grand Fur. In a small way, the wit of the album title’s pun prepares us for the upbeat sharpness of the record as a whole. Here, Rogue Wave offer an album that’s both innovative and approachable.Delusions of Grand Fur manages to balance clear folk influences with gawking explorations of electronica. Some tracks pull off this juggling act better than others, but more often than not, we’re treated to colourful tonal blends.
