Headwaves is a Seattle based duo that creates a mix of hazy dream pop, heady rhythms and lush synth rock. Lead singer Ryan Barber inherently writes folk songs about love, depression and desire, but he had the urge to make people move in a way folk songs simple couldn’t do. He had the need for his lyrics to smoothly float over a lush bed of instruments and heady dance driven rhythms. Teaming up with friend Larson Haakenstad and producer, Randall Dunn, the sound of Headwaves was created over the period of two years.
