Inglewood quintet Inner Wave’s “synth-wave” contagion spread like … well, you know … in 2019, when their “Wya” EP built on the momentum the band had from their album “Underwater Pipe Dreams.” Their national tour included a memorable night at the Fonda Theatre, which was captured on a live album Inner Wave released earlier this year.
Their new EP “Wyd” finds the band — Pablo Sotelo, Juan Pierre Narvaez, Chris Runners, Elijah Trujillo and Luis Portillo — busting into dancier musical territory. While their big tour for this year has been postponed, they’re still slated to play the rescheduled Coachella in October (if it happens). There, no doubt, fans will groove to songs such as “Estrella,” off the new EP. It makes you want to find a party somewhere (pro tip: be safe, and don’t) … or drive the nearly deserted streets of L.A.
