Waters Debut New Track “Up Up Up” Live on KCRW

The man behind Waters, Van Pierszalowski, told Jason Bentley he was not shying away from big choruses on their new record, slated for release in Spring.

They have an EP out now, but played a bunch of new tracks during their Morning Becomes Eclectic set this morning, including the radio debut of the ultra catchy “Up Up Up”.

Van said he aimed to make music for his “16-year-old self”, huge guitar songs with pop hooks that sound great on the radio, like the bands that changed HIS life (Green Day, Smashing Pumpkins, etc…)

The project started after he fell in love with a lady in Oslo, Norway and ended up living there for a couple years. When he started writing, he knew it was a different project than his previous band Port O’Brien.

The Cali native founded that collective while still in college, and it gave him a chance to travel the world for the first time. After 5-6 years of touring however, it was clear the project had run it’s coures and he was ready for something new.

He recruited Ryan Rabin of Grouplove as producer and is putting the finishing touches on the album now. Look for it in March. Watch/Listen to the full session here as a preview! RR
