Endless Wave are a sonic rock trio off to a loud start in 2010 with a pair of EPs produced and recorded by Paul Q. Kolderie (Radiohead, Pixies). Favored by local radio and press, these Boston boys are a 3 piece army redefining the boundaries between pop and rock.

Biography

Endless Wave is a 3-piece American Britpop band taking an energized approach to shoegaze and psychedelic rock. The band consists of Andre Obin (bass, vocals), Timothy Ryan (guitars) and Tucker Dawson (drums). Marrying elements of post-punk and dream pop, the band's sound has been aptly described by press as "skygaze".

Formed in 2009, Endless Wave showed promise when the band’s first single, “Last Phase” (produced by Obin) received regular spins on local rock radio, WFNX. Over the course of 2010, Endless Wave recorded 2 EPs with legendary producers, Paul Q. Kolderie (Radiohead, Pixies) and Adam Taylor at Camp Street Studios in Cambridge, MA.

Their first EP, City Walls, was released in June of 2010 and their sophomore effort is due out in the spring of 2011. Both EP’s are being released on the Boston indie label, Fort Point Recordings.

“Imagine the Verve, Ride, Slowdive, or My Bloody Valentine if any of those bands went jogging on a regular basis. There's a bit more of a rock thrust to these songs than is often found up the nü-gaze tree.”
- Boston Phoenix

“They’ve taken an established genre and breathed new life into it, and this impeccably produced debut shows they’re ready to take the dream-pop reins for themselves.”
- The Weekly Dig

"A rock undertow keeps the band's dreamy, ethereal shoe-gazing soundtrack from floating too far afield in the ethereal abyss.”
- Stuff@Night

"A shining star has been found rising on the near horizon.”
- Performer

Lyrics

Ocean Drive

Written By: Endless Wave

Are you wide awake?
Do you wanna go to the cape?
I hear an ocean drive
helps to clear your mind

So take your time
It's yours as much as mine
The only truth I know
Is the art of letting go

Are you wide awake?
Do want to go to escape?
I hear an ocean drive
can help you find home

Up past the last patrol
We hit the cruise control
And this much I know
I't so hard to let you go
But I'll take your word
that you've heard this all before
The only truth I know
Is the art of letting go

I hear an ocean drive
helps to clear your mind

Last Phase

Written By: Endless Wave

50 seconds til the last phase
40 seconds and we're fading away
so go get ready for the next wave
seven seconds until we disengage

there's no one watchin' now
there's nothing stoppin' us
I had to change the codes
patterns only you can know

someday soon we separate
we forget about our old ways
this is a dawning of a new age
they may never find us
they'll never find us!

there's no one watchin' now
there's nothing stoppin' us
I had to change the codes
impressions only you can know

there's no one watching now
there's nothing stopping us
I had to change the codes
patterns only you can know
