The Olympia-based, Waves Crashing, infuses lush soundscapes into fresh melodic hooks putting a new spin on alternative music from the 80s & 90s.
Since forming, Waves Crashing have released a handful of singles and EP’s, including the Sea of Wires EP, which debuted globally on the shoegaze radio station, DKFM.
Waves Crashing have been fortunate to play at the LoveOly Summer Fest in Olympia, as well as being tapped to play at the inaugural South Sound Block Party alongside groups like Bully, The Cave Singers, and The Districts during the summer of ’22. As well as local support this year for Ringo Deathstarr, Darks0ft and the West Seattle Summer Fest.
The band's 2022 EP, High/Low, features mixing by engineers James Aparicio (Depeche Mode, Spiritualized, Mogwai), contains standout tracks “High/Low” and “In My Head” (Featured on KEXP 90.3 FM), some of the most well received songs in the bands' ever-expanding catalog.
With their latest release, the 4-track EP, The Viewing, we hear the band diving sonically deeper than ever before to bring some of their most well-crafted and beautiful songs to the surface. The feature single "Life on Display" has been very well received with continued radio support from KEXP Seattle, DKFM Los Angeles, WXNA Nashville and more. With this release, all is on display for the world to hear for themselves.
