AMP Meets… The Ninth Wave


Britain’s premier music tastemaker Annie Mac has announced the return of AMP LONDON, bringing the best new talent in music from a variety of genres to the capital’s most loved music venues. We caught up with Glaswegian alt pop group The Ninth Wave to find out what you can expect from their set…

What was your highlight of 2019?

Being branded as ‘nancy shite’ by some top bloke lad geezer.

Do you have any new year’s resolutions? Do you usually stick to them?

Take interviews more seriously.

What’s the wildest thing you’ve ever put on a rider?

Vegan cheese, Marmite and Buckfast. Spread the Marmite on the cheese and roll up and dunk in the Buckfast.

What can we expect from your set?

Granny is going to sweat and spit on all the naughty children.

What’s your favourite thing about London?

Leaving and going back to Glasgow.

What artist would you love to collaborate with?

Sleaze Kidneys.

What’s your writing process?

I sit in my room at the piano trying to play things and when I can’t I scream nasty words at my laptop I repeat this until I make song.

Any advice for any younger musicians who want to play something like AMP one day?

Always keep a guitar pick in every pair of trousers you own so you can always be armed with a pick no matter what trousers you are wearing. This will make you look like you are prepared for any shred that may come your way.

The Ninth Wave will play at The Lexington on Saturday 7th March
