Big Wave Riders

Big Wave Riders © Tekla Valy

Big Wave Riders hail from Helsinki, Finland. They are inspired by waves, echoes and experimental rhythms with an electronic touch. Big Wave Riders are influenced by the music that touched them most when they were teenagers. To quote Big Wave Riders : “Our music is not trying to fit into any certain genre. We make music without mathematics or accurate calculations. The songs are fast, slow, rhythmic and with variety”

BIG WAVE RIDERS are : Teppo vocals & guitar, Aleksi bass & bvoc, Anssi guitar & bvoc, Pete drums, Lauri sax & synth.

HS Nyt 3/5 “I recommend that you do buy as it is one of the best releases this year.

KSML ”Vaikka orkesteri pelaa hyvin pitkälle loppuun asti mietittyillä soundeilla, niin pääosaan nousevat kuitenkin hyvät sävellykset.

We Never Stood A Chance ”Life Less Ordinary on hyvä ja vahva debyyttialbumi.

Stupido Shop Alkusyksyn ehdottomasti hienoimpia indiepoptapauksia tässä maassa.

All Scandinavian ”Big Wave Riders have their sound and expression down….. ‘Life Less Ordinary’ is still a solid first stab at world domination.”

All Ears ”Life Less Ordinary on hyvä debyyttialbumi…Sävellykset ovat vahvoja, eikä levyltä jää soimaan päähän sanat vaan ulvovat kitarat, tarttuvat synat tai voimakas basso.”
