THE WAVE CHARGERS
The Wave Chargers are four young people active in the Parisian underground since 2015.
Four musicians giving energetic and sexy surf music at the same time.
After two EPs and an LP (“The Wave Chargers” 2019), both acclaimed by the public and the media (Rock & Folk, Rolling Stone, FIP, France 24, Radio 3-rtve), the band is back to what it does best: instrumental music that’s mainly surf (think Californian sixties bands), but this time with an eye to other geographical and cinematic horizons.
These horizons were opened up after the release of their first album. Too confined as they were to waiting for concerts to resume, they took the opportunity to work as composers and session musicians on a number of catalog music projects. These surf, jazz, yé-yé and rock’n’roll projects regularly find their way into cinema and television (“L’Evènement” Golden Lion – Venice 2021, various Netflix series and films (“Emily In Paris” “Madame Claude”), France TV, Discovery Channel).
Additional experiences that allowed The Wave Chargers to show that they weren’t just an instrumental surf band, but four talented musicians who could play whatever they wanted, and give this second album a richness all of its own.
From the foot-tapping surf theme throughout, to nods to the beach party movies of Annette Funicello and Frankie Avalon, to Hawaiian ambiences, references to Japanese Eleki, or a detour to the West and North African coasts, this voyage in a Caravelle is a little trip around the world in less than 30 minutes.
