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 select tracks from the band’s prior output, and the band’s first release on The Reverberation Appreciation Society. 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, released as a limited edition 10″ EP. Holy Wave returned with their 3rd studio LP, ‘Freaks Of Nurture‘, released via The Reverberation Appreciation Society on March 11, 2016. Recorded at Cacophony Recorders in Austin, TX by Erik Wofford (Explosions In The Sky, The Black Angels, My Morning Jacket).
On Thursday, July 19th, Holy Wave will bring their musical talents to the Echoplex in Los Angeles. Expect to hear the top power tracks such as “Western Playland” and “She Put a See in My Ear” off the album ‘Freaks of Nurture‘. Furthermore, the song “Do You Feel It” should make its way into the setlist. The track has over 1 million plays on Spotify. Joining Holy Wave will be Versing, Smokescreens, and Gold Cage.
