Bad Wave are the band two best guy friends start when life’s responsibilities have gotten too great and they need to reflect on their shared youth, almost in secret. Except songwriter Tucker Tota and his production backbone Patrick Hart are far too young to be nearing midlife crisis. In fact, Bad Wave began out of the sort of trappings familiar to all 20-somethings scrambling to piece their shit together in adulthood’s early stages. The name Bad Wave itself is taken from the Spanish phrase ‘mala onda’, which literally translates as “bad waves” but you can take it as meaning “bad vibes”. “We’re trying to spread good vibes though,” reassures Patrick. By releasing their own anxieties through Bad Wave, these two only have great intentions.
