Running at well over 6:00 min per side, this 7" captures a band in a single room; ocean, old cabin, blueberry hill, bear shit and all.

The Big Wave Beach Day Release
First EP, Spring Break

Recommended if You Like: Ty Segall, Wavves and Best Cost

My name is Oliver Braun and The Big Wave Beach Day is my musical project. I have always been interested in the harmony between surfing and music. As a child (late 90's ) I watched countless surf videos featuring music that has influenced my sound. During my youth, I made up a different song each time I went surfing, in order to fuel my "stoke".

I am originally from Key Largo, FL, and now I have resided to Los Angeles. I am still all about surfing and finding the right mental sounds to make my surf session a little more epic. I have found that music/surfing are on the same mental wave. Fluidity, style, and transitions are the essence of life and sound.
