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.
This week, Holy Wave streamed their forthcoming album, Freaks of Nurture. The album will be out March 11th on The Reverberation Appreciation Society.
Recently, the band made the move to Austin and released Knife Hits, The Evil Has Landed I and II, and Evil Hits, a compilation featuring select tracks from the band’s prior releases. The band released their second LP, Relax, in 2014 on Levitation’s (formerly Austin Psych Fest) Reverberation Appreciation Society label and Burger Records. Relax saw the band expanding both their sound and their membership, recording for the first time as a five-piece. Holy Wave has toured extensively around the states and internationally, including support for GOAT and Psychic Ills, Austin Psych Fest | Levitation 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8, as well as appearances at SXSW and CMJ.
