Double Inner Wave at the El Rey: Los Angeles-based Latin band Inner Wave are playing two nights at the El Rey this week, on Thursday and Friday. Brainstory and Michi will open on Thursday, with Tatiana Hazel and Ruby opening on Friday.
According to their bio, “This Los Angeles five-piece has been playing music together since they were 13 years old and their musical cohesion shines through. Hailing from the South-L.A. neighborhood of Inglewood, (an area known more for it’s hip-hop roots than indie cred), Inner Wave has carved a unique sound that branches off into lo-fi psychedelia, while still paying tribute to their home in the Southland.”
“After their breakout record, Sun Transmission, the band has made a name for themselves in the local Los Angeles scene, embarking on a west coast tour with indie rockers, Hot Flash Heat Wave and just wrapped up a US tour with bedroom pop band, Triathlon- selling out multiple venues including the legendary Roxy on sunset strip in Los Angeles.”
Earlier in the year, they released the “Take 3” single and Apoptosis album, with frontman Pablo Sotelo saying: “This track has a lot of parallels to another song of ours called ‘song 3. It’s about the mundane/repetitive aspects of quarantine life. Both songs have an element of questioning reality. I tried to do a callback to the ‘song 3’ video with the ‘take 3’ video by using a projector and having elements of a repetitive simulation.”
Double Inner Wave at the El Rey: The event takes place at 9 p.m. on Thursday, December 30 and Friday, December 31 at the El Rey Theatre.
