Holy Wave
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 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 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, The Black Angels, My Morning Jacket).
Holy Wave has toured extensively around the states and internationally, including support for GOAT and Psychic Ills, and festival appearances at SXSW, CMJ, Incubate, and every year at LEVITATION (formerly Austin Psych Fest) since 2011, including the upcoming 2016 edition.

“They’ve got the far-off, dreamy vocal wash of the shoegazers, but their guitars and hooks are anything but subtle, invoking the tone of early Kinks or Nuggets acts on ‘Psychological Thriller’.” – Pitchfork
“There’s a touch of melancholy lurking under all the sepia-drenched warmth, but make no mistake–this is asleep-in-the-sunlight bliss.” – Under the Radar
“It’s a garage-rock lover’s garage-rock album, unabashedly embracing of Zombies-like slacker psalms and clunky guitar manipulations.” – Paste
