Wave in Head is a one-man German synthpop music project, which was founded in 1993 in Magdeburg, Germany. His name is Michael Pohl.

The first musical activities have been nothing more than a hobby, when he started, to make some noises with his first sampler, the Ensoniq ASR-10. The style walks between kittering bass lines, well balanced bleeps, a catchy sing-along chorus and fancy, synth styled vocals. An interesting feature is that some lyrics are written in German as in the singles "Zeit zu leben", "Als Ob", "Ich denke nicht" and "Ist She schon".


In 1999, the project has reached a state of development that allowed production of a first CD, the "rarely" EP. It was distributed through the internet and had got very positive and enthusiastic reviews by several E-zines. The subsequent CD "Criminal Ballad" was not published, because it was made for promotion purposes only, and the debut album was in production yet. In winter 2000 Wave in Head performed live for the first time in Berlin and several record labels offered their cooperation.

Since the beginning of 2001, Wave in Head is signed to A Different Drum and released the debut album, "Time to speak" there, as well as the singles "progress" and "I began to hope" and stayed on the best selling chart for over 10 weeks.

Wave In Head also donated a song to the New Order tribute album "True Faith", covering "Blue Monday".

In 2005 the band released "For a Special Moment plus the MCD "I hate to be in love"

After a longer break WAVE IN HEAD released a 4th album - "The Voice in Me" plus a digital single with the same name in 2010.

2012 was the year of the release of another album. "Remixed" was a mix of unreleased, new and rare, remixed tracks. Due to the falling meaning of real CDs it was available as limited edition CD (500 copies) and digitally.

Wave In Head has released all of his albums, (except for the self-produced EP Rarely), through the label, A Different Drum based in Salt Lake City. Meanwhile, all albums and singles are available thru CDBaby.com, I-Tunes, Amazon, Spotyfi and 2500 other online shops all over the world.
