Listen to Bad Wave's latest glitch-pop anthem "Money". Comprised of two former surf-rockersTucker Tota and Patrick Hart, newly independent Los Angeles duo Bad Wave first bonded over a fondness for Weezer and refer to their friendship as a "tech-inspired bromance" thanks to their shared <3 of analog synths and plug-ins. The name Bad Wave itself is taken from the Spanish phrase "mala onda," aka "bad vibes." But you won't find any of those in the group's unique blend of light-as-air, glitchy synth pop that recalls the likes of Foster The People, Phoenix, and New Order.
The duo produce most of the music via email (à la The Postal Service), despite living in the same the same neighborhood. The over-Internet mystique allows them to "collaborate without the limitations of having to put on pants." After releasing a handful of glorious sunshine cuts like “Extraordinary" "3 AM" and "1955," Bad Wave return to close out 2017 with a **BANG** with their new capitalism-tinted bop "Money," a track that slides on boisterous synths and radiant '60s girl-group backing vocals, as they repeat the mantra: "ooh, I just want you for your money."
