Katrina and the WavesLyrics Walking On Sunshine

The band’s earliest incarnation was as the Waves, a band that played around the Cambridge, England area in the mid-70s. That band featured Kimberley Rew on guitars and Alex Cooper on drums. They never made any recordings, and broke up shortly after Rew left the band to join the Soft Boys. They eventually got back together and signed a record deal with the Capitol Records label.

Their first album for Capitol, Katrina and the Waves, was a huge success both commercially and critically. It featured the hit song “Walking on Sunshine.” The band toured constantly in the mid-80s and was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best New Artist. The band’s follow up to “Walking on Sunshine,” “Do You Want Crying,” also went on to become a major hit in the United States.

The band’s follow up to Katrina and the Waves, titled simply Waves, did not do well either on a critical or commercial level. Katrina and the Waves continued to play throughout the 1990s, but called it a day in the year 1997.

The albums of Katrina and the Waves include Shock Horror, Walking on Sunshine, Katrina and the Waves, Katrina and the Waves 2, Waves, Break of Hearts, Pet The Tiger, Edge of the Land, Turnaround, and Walk on Water.
