Band of the Day #7 – Heavy Waves

Band: Heavy Waves
Band members: Luke Morgan (bass/vocals), Ed Taylor (guitar), Matt Tucker (drums)
Hometown Birmingham
Sounds like: Howler, No Age, Yuck
Online: Facebook // Twitter // Soundcloud
Next up in our Band of the Day feature are Brum trio Heavy Waves.
Heavy Waves are a Birmingham-based experimental lo-fi-grunge trio set to take the second city by storm. Possessing a sound similar to that of a cross between Yuck and No Age, Heavy waves combine lo-fi crackle with clever hooks and trippy vocals that will leave you longing for your next fix. 
Hailing from the same city as buzz bands Peace and Swim Deep, Heavy Waves are sure to be the name on everyone’s lips in the next 12 months. They’re just about to confirm some more Birmingham shows so keep an eye out on this band in 2013.
Listen to ‘Edward’ below.
