Bad Wave – 1955

Bad Wave

A juxtaposing theme in Bad Wave‘s new single, ‘1955’; a “nostalgia for the future” if you will.

Much like the melodies within the song, ‘1955’ is split between the progression of the past and hope for the future with it’s echoey harmonies and rocky guitar riffs.

‘1955’ is out now via 10K Islands.

Bad Wave – Extraordinary

Bad Wave

Intermittent roommates-turned-best friends, Bad Wave, share the video for ‘Extraordinary’.

The track is a seemingly pleasant one to start, but it soon changes into a more sinister tone.

The name Bad Wave itself is taken from the Spanish phrase ‘mala onda’, which translates as “bad waves” but you can take it as meaning “bad vibes”. “We’re trying to spread good vibes though,” reassures Patrick.

By releasing their own anxieties through Bad Wave, these two only have great intentions.
