“Deliver us from evil” – yes, but how? “Relax,” says Holy Wave.
“Relax” sees the band expanding both their sound and their membership, recording for the first time as a five-piece. Holy Wave continues to carefully combine fluid forms of sacred surf sounds, droning riffs and group vocals that haunt and harmonize in equal measure. The songs on “Relax” are confident and streamlined, yet expansive as ever. The band creates a fuzz-frenzy as deep as it is wide, captured with care by producer Erik Wofford (Explosions in the Sky, My Morning Jacket, The Black Angels) at Cacophony Studios in Austin, TX.
Holy Wave est une des têtes de proue de la scène rock d’Austin. Avec un son entre shoegaze, drone et rock psyché, l’hydre à cinq têtes fonce tête baissée. On pense à leurs grands frères des Black Angels mais aussi à la puissance de feu de My Bloody Valentine ou aux vocalises perchées de Rocky Erikson.
