WAVERER was founded initially as a bedroom-pop solo project by student and songwriter Lorenzo Contin from Zurich, Switzerland. The self-recorded debut EP "Cloudgazing" resulted from the attempt to develop the odd assortment of scraps of lyrics and chord progressions into fully arranged songs. It was released independently in April 2018. In 2019, WAVERER started performing live as a four-piece band with acoustic and electric components.
WAVERER blends chanson-type indie folk songs with a subtly psychedelic surf pop sound that is both melancholic and nonchalantly dreamy. The lyrics tell tales of awkward flirting, cinematic escapade daydreams and everyday millennial problems. The laid back drum grooves, hazy guitar sounds and crooned vocals attempt to recreate the vague dreamy mood one might experience on a stoned saturday afternoon while gazing at clouds in a secluded city park.
