Some initial reaction to the EP from around the globe: The Youth Collective (Sweden) 9/10 EP review Sleeping Sun (USA) “…a link to their new EP. It’s filled with some really great, poppy, sunbathed songs.” Rumba interview (in Finnish) The Pop! Stereo (USA) “Big Wave Riders are yet another fantastic Scandinavian group that seem to have mastered the art of finely crafted pop music.” Beautiful Sounds (Germany) Indie 30 (Australia) “They have hit the mark in this short time, with their groove laden beats shining through” Goute Mes Disques (France) Fake Plastic Tunes (Canada) “With some infectious surf rock, the Helsinki band offers up some nice sounds to add to any playlist in need of a catchy jolt. “ Echoes (Finland) WFD (Canada) “…which to me sounds more mature, but still has that undeniable feel good vibe taking over your ears and mind. Let’s go to the beach now.” Slow Show (Finland) YLEX (Finland) The Jangle Drop (Spain) I Don’t Like Your Tunes (USA) “One of my favorite discoveries from this year are the BIG WAVE RIDERS.” Stop, Shake, Honey, Go (Finland) Austin Town Hall (USA) “There’s just this bit of craftiness living beneath the feeling of fun that you’ll probably associate with this song, and who doesn’t like to see those two things meet up?” Indie Music Filter (Canada) Uncool Shoes (USA) “Big Wave Riders craft a sound that could be described as a unique blend of new-wave, surf pop, and a persistent “huge” sound.” Light Meets Night (USA) Singin’ Drunken Lullabies (Finland) Lily (Finland)
