Baywaves have released new single Down 4 U on Foehn Records.
The Madrid-based four-piece recorded the track with Hans Krüger at Montreal Studios and mixed by Jarvis Taveniere (Woods, King Gizzard, Real Estate).
The new single arrives as the band prepares to hit the road in October for their debut headline tour. The run will open in London at The Victoria on 23rd October 2017.
Baywaves say of the new track, “This song was recorded during the same sessions as our previous single Gliss. It was a great studio experience as each song asked for a completely different approach; while Gliss was more like a punchy, live show-oriented song, Down 4 U is a mellow, yachty pop love song. We spent more time geeking with vintage synths and keys, perfecting the vocal effects and working on the arrangements with Hans Krüger at his studio, with Jarvis Taveniere then giving it the perfect mix between ethereality and groove. We are really excited as its release marks the beginning of a European/UK tour and we can’t wait to share it with everyone”.
Baywaves will then perform in Glasgow, Newcastle, Leeds and Brighton before finishing up in Bristol at The Old England on 31st October. The band will also perform at Mirrors Festival on 28th October, alongside Pinegrove, Los Campesinos! and Ultimate Painting.
The rise of Baywaves is part of the burgeoning Madrid independent music scene that has seen a slew of breakout acts including the band’s friends Hinds and The Parrots.
