Graham Coxon

Founding Blur member Graham Coxon and former Pipettes vocalist Rose Elinor Dougall have announced their new group called The WAEVE. They two musicians came together during Christmas of 2020 and their collaborative efforts "gave rise to an unexpected sonic universe." A mash of guitars, saxophones, and strings—alongside their "shared love of English folk music, storytelling, and the associated landscapes of this beleaguered island"—is what resulted in The WAEVE.

It’s always been hard to pin down Graham Coxon in his solo work. Sometimes he’ll give us straight-up indie bangers, like on 2004’s ‘Happiness In Magazines’. At others, he’ll whirl through less radio-friendly fare and explore brave new ground, as on 2012’s ‘A+E’. Away from Blur, he’s also dabbled in creating scores for TV shows, like The End Of The F***ing World and I Am Not Okay With This.
