10 questions for Baywaves!

First things first how did you come to be?
We began as a duo in the north of Spain and started to jam for fun and learning to record it. The rest is pure Internet magic. We uploaded our first two demos to Soundcloud and received an unexpected good feedback from blogs and gig promoters all over the world. That was what pushed us through to make it real and completed the band with two guys we met by… Internet haha

What genre of music would you say you play?
We’ve been tagged as hipnopop and we guess it fits really well with our music: pop with an hypnotic wrapping.

Which bands/artists do you take influences from?
The background of each member are really different, but we enjoy as a band a lot of common things and are always looking for new sounds, from hip hop to psych pop or latin music.

Best venue you’ve ever played and why?
Really love the vibe from Dabadaba in San Sebastián. We supported Boogarins there and we are coming back this month with our EP tour!

Best gig you’ve ever attended?
Some weeks ago we went to see Alien Tango in Madrid and it blew our minds.

A band you would most like to support and why?
We absolutely love MGMT and their approach to music, shows, etc, so yeah, that would be huge for us.

A band that you would like to work with?
A lot, man! Would love to have some vocals from Kali Uchis.

Top five albums you’ve ever heard?
It’s almost impossible to make an All-Time list, so here there goes some albums we’re enjoying right now: Mild High Club – Timeline, Kendrick Lamar – To Pimp A Butterfly, Anderson Paak – Malibu, Elliott Smith – Figure 8, Fanso – Acid House.

Biggest accomplishment as a band/solo artist?
In terms of “popularity”, probably being part of this Primavera Sound line-up.

What’s next in the pipeline?
Our debut EP is coming out this month and we’re making our first tour, couldn’t be more excited! It starts out with a UK trip: we’re playing Shacklewell Arms 30/3 and The Monarch 31/3 in London, and Sticky Mike’s 1/4 in Brighton. It’s our first time there so we hope y’all can make it and give us a welcome! Then we have 10 dates or so in our country, visiting a lot of cool cities and amazing festivals such as Primavera Sound, SOS, Vida or Quintanilha. Really looking forward to meet everyone.

Thank you guys for your time, you’re awesome all the best for the future!
