US wunderkinds Wavves have announced an Australian tour in May on the back of their appearance on the Groovin The Moo 2012 line-up. They made their first trip here last year with a small club tour and a blistering set at Golden Plains, and now they’re back to play some bigger and better venues.
The brainchild of San Diego native Nathan Williams, Wavves started as a one-man bedroom project, where he penned summer anthems about being a slacker and smoking weed. Four years on, they have morphed into a four-piece musical tour de force, with bass player Stephen Pope, guitarist Alex Gates and drummer Jacob Cooper joining Williams as permanent fixtures in the studio and on the road.
Releasing King Of The Beach in 2010, the album consolidated Wavves’ already burgeoning fanbase and marked the band’s breakthrough to a wider audience with its set of fuzzed up, fleshed out confections, that struck a chord with critics and audiences alike.
The 2011 follow-up, Life Sux, is a compelling eight-song mini-album that picks up where King Of The Beach left off.
