Waves on Waves presented its first proper release (Waves on Waves Self Titled) in September of 2008. The debut completes their 21st century journey from Indiana garage band to consummate rock pros; and marks the beginning of a new phase with VTP Music, "a sort of music industry investor group," says the band. The resulting Waves on Waves Self Titled is a tight collection of pop sensibility and oozing art rock, and the group drifts masterfully between the two--- at once the melancholy of Computer Love Kraftwerk with the optimism of early U2 or James. "We wanted to make a record that showed who we really are and at the same time not obtuse," says Thornton.

"We tried to be universal with the record, and hopefully it's something that could grow into mass appeal." Under the moniker Thornton, it was the group's 2004 release Had a Sword that first put them on the underground radar. Receiving praise from a variety of publications and quickly gaining recognition, they were hurled into the forefront as one of Nashville's premier rock outfits after winning the Nashville Scene Award for the Best Experimental Rock Group in 2004. In support for Had a Sword, the group made their way through an extensive tour in 2004 and 2005. Although largely successful, their ride was cut short after Hurricane Katrina ravaged New Orleans and, consequently, the plans for the rest of their tour. As they fled north from the disaster, they cancelled the rest of their tour dates, and the band went into hiatus; and lead singer/guitarist Kevin Thornton went on a sabbatical in South America.

This hiatus, however, became the catalyst for their latest record, Waves on Waves Self Titled. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
