Holy Wave is an experimental dream-pop band originally from El Paso, Texas. After seeing a life-altering performance by My Bloody Valentine in 2008, the band moved to Austin to pursue their own vision of Texas psych, their sweet melodies dyed in carefully constructed noise. Over the course of four albums, the band have cemented themselves as a staple force in the international indie scene, with key performances at Levitation, Desert Daze, and nearly every psych gathering on the planet. They’ve toured the world, and shared the stage with heroes such as Slowdive, Spiritualized, Hope Sandoval and The Black Angels. Their body of work has received critical acclaim from Pitchfork, Consequence of Sound, Paste Magazine and countless others, and in 2020 they are prepared to release their latest body of work.

Hello, thank you for your support of Holy Wave! This is a band we have championed for years, and we have two announcements to share with you: The band just released their excellent new LP “Interloper”, and the band would sure love to be back on the road & playing these new songs on tour. 2020 had other plans, so Levitation is going to be bringing Holy Wave’s live show to you, via our Levitation Sessions series, Tune into Levitation Sessions at 5pm CT on July 25th to catch Holy Wave celebrating the release of their new album with a full live set, filmed and recorded at Mosaic Sound Collective. The show features tracks from their new album Interloper + choice cuts from their discography, and visuals by Drip Cuts!

Interloper sees the band adding new layers to their lush and mesmerizing songwriting style. Written about the duality between life at home and life on the road, it sees the band expanding on their most esoteric and thought-provoking themes.
“I’m Not Living in the Past Anymore”
 is a mantra about breaking the cycle of the mundane, “Escapism” is a dream-like meditation. “Interloper” serves as the centerpiece for this self-expanding record, asking, what happens when the world beneath your feet changes so much that you feel like a stranger in your own shoes? The band turns inward, to blissed-out moments on album opener “Schmetterling”, the saccharine haze of “R&B”, and the freak-out catharsis of live favorite “Buddhist Pete”.

With Interloper Holy Wave weaves together a contemplative tapestry that can serve as a road map for the diffident, a soundtrack to self-realization, or simply an invitation to escape.
