Playing together in teenage bands since early high school, vocalist/guitarist Chris Kokiousis, bassist Greg Kestenbaum and drummer Calbert Tung grew up in a sleepy town without a definitive music scene. Inspired by a few local, underrated groups like Respira and Amestory, they started Nobody Wave with the goal of breaking out of Thousand Oaks and shedding light on the fragile music community that they grew in. Without any shame, they've honed a style that takes the experimental and heartfelt qualities of their local heroes and marries it with undeniable pop songwriting. After a bright-eyed summer tour up the California coast in August 2009 with fellow Thousand Oaks buds Pretend, Nobody Wave holed up in a San Luis Obisbo apartment that winter with friend/producer Morgan Mitchell to create their first record. Headgeared is culled from songwriter Chris Kokiousis' college days at UC San Diego, his pool of lo-fi dorm demos arranged into a nostalgic whole. With influences spanning the Kinks, Deerhoof, Motown and Desaparecidos, the suburban three-piece repurpose vintage violence and warm melodies to their needs.
