You can call it retro-futurist or simply old-fashioned synth-pop but Splash Wave makes the kind of music which calls up a scrolling of synthetic landscapes, some pixelated scenes of chase and three-color printed memories shooted somewhere between L.A and Düsseldorf. After giving UK a couple of shows last october, they’ll be on the road again in 2011 following a new EP release on 3rd Side Records (march 2011).
Summertime is spinning out with their track ‘Theme for two cool guys at the beach’.
Press says : “The eighties did a lot of things, and nostalgia is an absolute bore, but a bit of look back is alright when the result is something as startlingly brilliant as this”.

THEY LIKE SPLASH WAVE :
“Summer stunner Splash Wave with their irresistibly-fun track straight from the annals of a Saved By The Bell beach volleyball episode.” Weekly Tape Deck
“Splash Wave sounds like a soundtrack from a crossover between alf and miami vice”. Anonymous fan
“Personally, i’m a fan”. Rubin Steiner
“Splash Wave demonstrated nothing but efficiency and professionalism in their BB&MP remix. 10 out of 10. They should brush up on their spelling though, ‘doods’.” Joe Howe (Ben Butler & Mousepad)
“There’s talent and ingenuity seeping from every song. (…) The eighties did a lot of things, and nostalgia is an absolute bore, but a bit of look back is alright when the result is something as startlingly brilliant as this.” The Pigeon Post (click to read the full review).
