Wavves are all the way up to album number five, hence the title V (unless Nathan Williams has interlaced a dense web of allusions to Thomas Pynchon into the album: answers on a postcard please). Summery, slightly lo-fi pop-punk remains the name of the game, this time with a full band backing Williams. On Ghost Ramp.

5/10 Jack Customer review, 27th July 2017
Wavves will always, to me, be Afraid of Heights. It's when they found their sound best, the perfect mix of grungy surfrock and psych-rock. It falls short of Afraid of Heights because Wavves abandoned their Nirvana-Weezer 90's grunge retro throwback sensibilities. V is a less-than-worthy followup that consists of a very short tracklist (album is only 30 minutes long) and tracks that just aren't memorable. I was hyped for this album, I really was, but the only song I've kept listening to is "My Head Hurts".
