Written and recorded remotely at the end of 2020, ‘Wavepool’ is a beautiful, uplifting collision of the creative bonds of Hailaker and S. Carey, two artists 4,000 miles apart.

Ed Tullett of Hailaker contacted Carey at the start of Lockdown to explore a collaboration, and after working together sporadically for a few months ‘Wavepool’ was the result. Produced in isolation with the help of Ali Lacey (aka Novo Amor; Tullett's longtime collaborator), the track was crafted around a spiralling trumpet sample left-over from recording sessions of the pair’s debut album. It was quickly brought to life, with Carey’s serene voice dovetailing with Jemima Coulter’s, falling over the duo’s slightly chaotic, yet blissfully varied production.

Hailaker (hay-ull-ache-err) is Jemima Coulter and Ed Tullett, who work between Bristol and Cardiff. Portland, Oregon-based collage artist Mike Roth handles artwork, and Lacey, amongst others, also contribute.
S. Carey is the moniker of Wisconsin-based singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Sean Carey. Carey has cut his teeth for the last decade on his solo project and as the long-established drummer, keyboardist, and backing vocalist of Bon Iver.


(it) Cools the nape, I’m bothered,
a loose delay,
then blushered.

Not the way
I wanted to behave. Count the days
and keel over.

If you be the canyon, I’ll be the landing. I won’t ask more. You’ll be the canyon, crass from camping, coursing dust, looming us.
You’ll be the canyon, I’ll be the landing. Land on all fours. Recall –
If you’ll be the canyon, I’ll stick standing, I won’t last long before...

Some left, some drowned, some can’t trace the hours. Coalesce, bring about, night Floats in your house.

Be set, be crowned,
be not something else. Canvas! Be loud, handsome beyond doubt.
