The Madrilenians paid a visit to East London to present their latest EP, ‘It’s Been Like’, getting under their belts yet another great gig out of their home country.
The band, which has been dubbed as a mash-up of the The Avalanches and The Stone Roses, used the gig as a warm-up ahead of another London show with Liverpool-based Her’s and a headline gig in Dublin.
Baywaves played new track ‘Over Time’, just released outside their latest studio work.
In it, the band showed that although their influences were initially somewhat clear (Tame Impala, Pond), they have experimented with new sounds, and they are definitely adding them to their new songs.
With funky vibes, the synths are yet more of a feature in their songs, with the bass used as a groove-keeping sound as much as a central melodic part of each song.
‘Over Time’ reminds of sounds from the 60s and 70s, which, brought to 2018 can be called “hipnopop”, as Baywaves themselves describe their music.
Having released their first studio EP, ‘Only For Uz’ only in 2016, the band has conquered the young scene in Spain gig after gig, but have been playing in the UK since their very beginning.
After that first EP, the band released two singles, ‘Gliss’ and ‘Down 4 U’, the latter being mixed by Jarvis Taveniere (who’s worked with Woods, King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard and Real Estate).
Friends with The Parrots, another Madrid band playing often in the UK, Baywaves will be crossing the pond to the US to play in the next edition of South By South West in Austin, Texas.
The band will begin working on their first studio album after this tour.
