Band Details

From the Promoter

Named for his fear of the ocean, Wavves, the skuzzy project of San Diego slacker Nathan Williams, is a blend of distorted no-fi and refined sunshiny melodies. Charmingly messy, most of his lyrics, while difficult to decipher, generally revolve around the subjects of weed, boredom, and the beach. Many praised the immediacy and DIY nature of his early work, and Williams capitalized on those aspects, continuously uploading free digital versions of his music, all with simple self-drawn artwork. After a series of albums, including the breakout ‘King of the Beach’ on Fat Possum, Wavves signed to Warner Bros for the stripped-down, hook ‘V’. But the process was painful for Williams, as a series of angry tweets sent out just before the release date made clear. The band’s major label tenure was brief, and the next album ‘You’re Welcome’ was released on Williams’ own Ghost Ramp label.
