Baywaves

Hailing from the north of Spain and the idyllic coasts of Vanuatu, Baywaves were born as a duo and quickly created a new musical genre they named «hypnopop». The work wasn’t finished until their moving to Madrid, where they became a quartet. As a full band, Baywaves gained attention from international media with their first single «The Freak Kingdom», which was featured in blogs over USA, Australia, United Kingdom, France and Japan among others. The Spanish magazine Mondo Sonoro picked the song as the third best demo of the year, just after Hinds and Karen Koltrane. The band was also elected by Converse for their Make Noise contest and reached the final stage of FIB’s competition for new bands, while debuting their new audiovisual show.
After this strong breakout, Baywaves have recorded their debut EP “Only For Uz” (Foehn Records, 2016), an impressive collection of shimmering, fuzzy and reverb-drenched tunes that will enhance anyone’s post-summer depression.

Impregnados de la calma bahía cantábrica de donde proceden y la frenética escena urbanita de donde habitan, Baywaves emergen con la misma frescura que su música, una fusión de melodías pop de brillo primaveral con desarrollos flotantes y capas de reverb marino.
Formados como dúo y establecidos como banda completa en Madrid, el joven cuarteto pronto se consolidó como una promesa a seguir con sus primeras demos autoproducidas y su single de presentación “The Freak Kingdom”, llamando la atención de la blogosfera internacional (DIY Mag, Sounds Better With Reverb…) y nacional (Indiespot, Mondo Sonoro…) o apareciendo en los concursos Make Noise, Proyecto Demo o Villa de Bilbao.
Tras esta rápida irrupción, Baywaves se estrenan oficialmente con su EP debut “Only For Uz
”, que verá la luz el 25 de marzo con Foehn Records. Grabado con Brian Hunt y mezclado por Joe Walker de los australianos King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, los madrileños moldean su sonido en cuatro canciones de pop ácido y coreable, bañadas en vibrantes guitarras con fuzz, sintes espaciales y ritmos dinámicos en la estela de Smith Westerns, UMO o Boogarins.
