Madrid-based four-piece Baywaves - David, Carlos, Fran and Marco – are the latest band to emerge from the burgeoning Madrid independent music scene, following in the footsteps of recent breakthrough acts including their friends Hinds and The Parrots.

Their debut EP, Only For Uz, mixed by King Gizzard guitarist Joe Walker, attracted early support from BBC 6Music, DIY, The Line Of Best Fit, among others. Tracks ‘Gliss’ and ‘Down 4 U’ received plaudits from across the world, landing them invitations to 2018 and 2019’s SXSW festival in Austin, Texas.As well as SXSW they've also played European festivals including Eurosonic, Primavera Sound, FIB Benicàssim, NOS Alive, Dutch Design Week, and Mirrors and End of the Road in the UK. They've
also played two headline tours in the UK and selected shows in Europe. A new single is expected in the first quarter of 2019, to be released on revered Manchester label Heist Or Hit.
