Wavves is really coming into his own with the release of his new album King Of The Beach. The song of the same title leaked last week, although I had to take it down only 15 minutes after posting. It was our first taste of Nathan’s cleaned up sound.
Now with the release of “Post Acid”, the first official single from the album, we can confirm that Nathan is indeed going for a new sound. Sure the elements of Wavves are still very much there. If anything, they just went to a better studio allowing them to flesh out their sound to their fullest potential. “Post Acid” features reverb friendly vocals that shift into a pretty poppy chorus over blistering guitars. Not bad Nathan, not bad. I’m enjoying this Wavves 2.o a lot more than the old Wavves (which I did like), that’s for sure.
