Wavves - Hippies Is Punks

Last week on Twitter, Wavves’ Nathan Williams promised a new song was imminent, and voila, here we go. “Hippies Is Punks” debuts today as part of Adult Swim’s Singles Series; it’s a bit cleaner-sounding than the band’s recent releases, Life Sux and King Of The Beach, but it retains their sharp songcraft and ultra-caffeinated energy/attitude. Download below.

Williams has also shared some info on the background of the band’s forthcoming album (which he says is “very close”) via tweet, which is worth reading…

  1. Damn. I was on-the-fence about this album after hearing him discuss it durring an interview regarding Sweet Valley, but now this fuckin’ hooky, awesome thing just happened I’m super pumped for this record!

  2. Into it. Artwork isn’t spectacular, but whatever…solid rock song.

  3. A nice step into a cleaner direction production-wise, which kind of reminds me a lot of Mr. Dream or Cloud Nothings’ bastard punk vibe.

  4. great track, maybe the best summer album of the year’s gonna be released in autumn

  5. I love Wavves, but I’m weary of this “one album a year” business. It’ll eventually become quantity over quality.
