1.) What inspired the creation of Day Wave?
It all started with the idea of starting a guitar band. Before Day Wave I was playing more synthesizer music and I really wanted to do something more rock based.
2.) What’s the meaning behind the name Day Wave?
It just sounded like the music.
3.) How did you originally get into performing?
I started playing drums when I was 9 or 10. I always loved music, and I always wanted to play an instrument. That led to playing in bands and eventually writing my own songs.
4.) What would you describe your style of music as?
I guess I’d call it indie rock.
5.) Out of all the songs you’ve made, what’s your favorite and why?
I think my favorite would have to be Total Zombie. That was one of the first, and the song where everything seemed to click.
6.) So the first album has been released, you’re on tour, what comes next for Day Wave?
More writing and recording.
7.) How has it been performing with the Shins? Do you think your two styles work well together?
These shows have been really rad, I think it’s a great fit for us. Their audience has been super welcoming and hopefully we’re gaining some fans along the way.
