After almost four years, Big Wave Riders are back with their sophomore album, Endless Summer. Over that time the band has kept playing, gone through a lineup change, and most importantly composed and recorded their second album. What we have here is a logical successor to the band’s debut album Life Less Ordinary.
Pieced together in various places, ranging from studios like Kaiku in Berlin and Kekkonen in Helsinki to various living rooms and rehearsal spaces, the songs experiment with rhythms, harmonies and textures, still retaining that direct pop sensibility the band is known for.
“Our music is not trying to fit into any certain genre. We make music without mathematics or accurate calculations. The songs are fast, slow, rhythmic and with variety.”
The summer’s coming to an end, but don’t worry, this is an Endless Summer.
