Here is the new video for “No Hope Kids” from Wavves off the EP Wavvves.Β  If you have’nt been up on the hype, Wavves is a one-man noise-pop project of 22-year-old San Diegan Nathan Williams that borrows some tricks from Sonic Youth but puts his own Southern California surf/rock vibe on it. Vintage skate footage, fast vocal hooks, 60’s girl group drumbeats and no -fi punk pop distortion that creates insular, unsettling music of a stoner loner singing the blues in his bedroom.Β  Lines like “no car, no friends, no family, no friends, no girl” are instantly nostalgic and unforgettable but more surprisingly upbeat. Wavves’ has a lot of tricks but maybe his best is turning boredom, hopelessness, and angst into a form of revelry. A trick most good artists accomplish.
