“Sidewave fuses lush, heavy chords, soothing melodies, and commanding grooves to create their signature space-rock sound. Influenced by the unsung greats of the nineties like Hum, Failure, and The Smashing Pumpkins, Sidewave’s debut album sounds at once nostalgic, yet completely fresh - conjuring an airy, lusty, almost orchestral crystalline wave.
The band recently finished up their debut album with mix master Aaron Harris (Palms, ISIS, Puscifer) and is preparing for a late summer/early fall 2015 release, followed by a tour in support.
The songs from the album started as a collection of demos written by songwriter, singer, and guitarist, Phil Golyshko. These demos were dubbed the “Big Time Demos” and once shared online, opened the door to a new chapter in the early life of Sidewave.
It was these demos that allowed Phil to reconnect with his cohorts from Chicago - now living in Los Angeles - drummer Brandon Dickert and guitarist Bill Collins. Within weeks, the group had found bassist and composer Matt Russell to round out the low end and provide “more bass”.
The band has already shared the stage with great rock acts such as The Life and Times, Black Map and Æges. With a new album on the horizon and a live show that just keeps getting bigger, better and of course, louder, 2015 promises to be even more exciting for fans of epic live rock n roll.
"These guys brought back the good guitar riffing style to rock again with their hard hitting songs that are beautifully melodic at the same time. Yes, a lot like the Smashing Pumpkins, yet far from that as they have their own sound offer." --Examiner.com
“[Sidewave] towers above the musical landscape, with cliffs of heavy guitars, swirling with anthemic vocals." --Music Blog Floorsheim Zipper Boots
