waves is the project of lead singer and guitarist, nathan williams and original drummer, ryan ulsh. they came together in 2008, released their self titled debut, and quickly garnered critical acclaim from many music publications. the sound they create is best described by me as, surf pop-punk. it’s very lo-fi sounding, but the melodies are most definitely pop oriented and they speed along with a nu-wave feel and an almost chillwave flow. (it’s awesome summer music!!!) so anyway, their second album came out in 2009 and was even more well received. that same year, the band fell apart due to personal problems with nathan and eventually ryan left. nathan then recruited drummer billy h ayes and bassist stephan pope who previously played with Jay Retard before he passed away, and this collaboration resulted in the band’s most recent full length, King Beach.
oh, why can't i be makin' love come true...
