Baywaves’ debut EP, «Only For Uz» (2016), was published by Barcelona’s Foehn Records, and mixed by King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard’s Joe Walker. They’ve received the support of The Line Of Best Fit, Noisey VICE, Radio 3, Remezcla, or BBC6. Their single “Time Is Passing U By” appeared on Spotify’s Top 10 Viral songs, reaching half a million plays. Live, they have played Primavera Sound, NOS Alive, FIB, Eurosonic Noorderslag, SOS 4.8, and End Of The Road, and sold out shows in Madrid, London, París, Berlín, Brighton, and Marsella.
Primavera Sound’s reporters defined the four-piece as “hypnopop-dressed psychedelia”, and their acid tunes, full of spacey synths, vibrant guitars and catchy vocals are influenced by Homeshake, Connan Mockasin, and Kendrick Lamar. They place a especial emphasis on dynamics and the creation of an atmosphere, and an excellent instrumentation.
Their two new tunes have been recorded by Hans Kruger and mixed by Jarvis Taveniere (Woods, Real Estate, Mild High Club), will be released soon, and promise for an even busier 2017/18.
