Holy Wave’s relaxed and psychedelic pop sound is the perfect accompaniment for most occasions, especially as a bright pick-me-up on a dull day. Sharp songwriting that rewards with numerous memorable melodies

On their third studio album, Freaks Of Nurture, the band combines elements of psych, Nuggets-era garage pop, and surf rock before slathering the whole package in the requisite coat of reverb. It’s the kind of dream that would be easy to get lost in, but there’s always a warm guitar riff to guide you out of your reverie, like a ray of sunlight shining on closed eyelids.

Freaks Of Nurture will be released via The Reverberation Appreciation Society last March . Recorded at Cacophony Recorders in Austin, the album is Holy Wave’s most sonically expansive to date. “We wanted to get heavier and louder, experiment with more songwriting styles and traditional pop elements,” the band explains. “We wanted to freely express different influences regardless of their relevance to each other.”
