Nathan Williams is back with his latest installment of Wavves, the surf-noise-pop-indie-punk that he fronts with Zach Hill, and their latest effort is the album Afraid of Heights. Pop hooks and noisy power chords run amok here, but that's what everybody listens to Wavves for, isnt it?
NPR Music is comparing Wavves to bands lize Nirvana to Green Day and Weezer, saying In the tradition of the bands that most clearly inspired him, Williams tends to direct his most scathing nihilism inward, and he only finds something approximating peace as Afraid of Heights reaches its conclusion: "I can finally sleep / but I can't dream." As Wavves' music evolves, it's easy to root for Williams to locate something approximating happiness, too."
