Skywave

Skywave was formed in the mid to late 90’s in Fredericksburg, Virginia by members Paul Baker (guitar, vocals), John Fedowitz (drums), and Oliver Akerman (bass).

Skywave was most active around 1999-2001, playing with many east coast American Shoegazers, and was a progenitor to the resurgence of shoegaze in America after its demise in the UK in 1996. Much of Skywave’s albums were released during this period - took the sun (1998) and echodrone (1999), along with a variety of ep records (i.e. Got That Feeling, Suicide, and Without You eps). Critics have cited Skywave’s sound as borrowing heavily from Noise-pop bands like Loop and The Jesus and Mary Chain.
