The track Shadow Or Sun. The song is home recorded and mixed by Awash bass player and award winning producer Warren Huart in LA at Spitfire Studio. The release of Shadow Or Sun will be followed by another release: that song will come out later this summer.
The band worked with a world famous award-winning producer on this track: with the help of Warren Huart (Aerosmith, The Fray, James Blunt, etc.) Awash present us a nice piece of music, which can undoubtedly bring the production to the next level internationally, as the song has a great potential to become a radio hit worldwide.

Sometimes lively, sometimes melancholic, but fascinating in both the small and the large. Lyrically, fragile, always brought with full dedication and energy that is contagious for everyone who beholds them. The band is special in its kind, due to the powerful voice of the singer and fretless bass sound of the bass player. The five years old track Carry On,
During live performances at the 3FM shows Nachtegiel and Ekdom In De Nacht Awash was compared with bands as Editors, Racoon and REM, but the strong unique sound is preserved. The fanatical drive to make music brought Awash already at various festivals, a tour through the UK, and larger Dutch music venues such as 013, Paard Van Troje, Mezz, Lakei and Bibelot, as well as being a support act for James Walsh.
After the well-received album Turn The Lights (2013) and EP Carry On (2015), the band has released their second album Waiting Words in April 2018. Recordings as diverse as life itself, autobiographic but also written from a different perspective. Where the previous album Turn The Lights was a journey to happiness, this latest album features a selection of everyday life as we know it.
