Holy Wave — Originally formed in El Paso, Texas, Holy Wave carefully combines fluid forms of sacred surf sounds, droning riffs, and group vocals that haunt and harmonize in equal measure. The band made the move to Austin and released Knife Hits, The Evil Has Landed, and Evil Hits, a compilation featuring featuring select tracks from the band’s prior output. The band’s second LP, Relax, was released in 2014 and saw the band expanding both their sound and their membership, recording for the first time as a five-piece. The band followed up Relax with Evil Hits Part II, a collection of B-Sides and demos, re...leased as a limited edition EP.
Holy Wave return with their 3rd studio LP, Freaks of Nurture, to be released via The Reverberation Appreciation Society on March 11, 2016. Recorded at Cacophony Recorders in Austin, TX by Erik Wofford (Explosions in the Sky, Black Angels, My Morning Jacket). Holy Wave has toured extensively around the states and internationally, including support for GOAT and Psychic Ills.
“They’ve got the far-off dreamy vocal wash of the shoe gazers, but their guitars and hooks are anything but subtle, invoking the tone of early Kinks or Nuggets acts on ‘Psychological Thriller.’ — Pitchfork
“It’s a garage-rock lover’s garage-rock album, unabashedly embracing of Zombies-like slacker psalms and clunky guitar manipulations” — Paste
