Bad Wave release new single ‘1955’!

Los Angeles based duo Bad Wave take us back to a bygone era on their latest single 1955 but by going back they want us to look to the future and be hopeful for what’s to come, conveying their message with catchy pop aplomb.

NME have already featured 1955, but you can now listen to it via Bad Wave’s Soundcloud Page.

The band’s last single Time To Get Lost explored the darker side of American politics but 1955 has a more positive tone. “A lot of things happened in 1955,” the band explain. “Elvis made his first television appearance. Rosa Parks refused to give up her bus seat. Steve Jobs was born and Albert Einstein died. Some people wish we could go back to 1955. A nostalgia for a simpler time. But we’re more excited about what’s ahead. We’ve got nostalgia for the future.”

Last year, Bad Wave’s Patrick Hart and Tucker Tota released a slew of singles, each receiving tremendous support, much to the pair’s surprise. 3AM topped the Hype Machine chart, hitting the number one spot, with Runaway peaking at no. 2 and they achieved over a million streams in 2016 as well as featuring on Spotify’s Fresh Finds playlist. The Guardian, The Line of Best Fit, DIY, Wonderland and The Sunday Times were amongst their top supporters with Beats 1’s Zane Lowe, BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens and LA based station KCRW flying the Bad Wave flag on the airwaves.

1955 is out now via 10K Islands and available to stream on Spotify.
