Holy Wave is a band of multi-instrumentalists from El Paso, Texas, USA. Since making a move to Austin in 2008, they have cemented themselves as a unique force in the national and international touring circuit. After perennial performances at the Austin Psych Fest (Levitation) and countless tours of the USA, Europe and Mexico, Holy Wave is poised to continue expanding their adventures into new spaces and places around the world. The band has 3 LPs and 3 EPs(Reverberation Appreciation Society, Burger Records, Volante Discos) under their belt. Holy Wave’s debut album Relax was well received by critics, including Paste Magazine, and saw the band testing their abilities in songwriting and sound-making. Their previous record, Freaks of Nurture, showed great evolution in composition and melody, and indicated that Holy Wave had begun to truly find a style and sound that is their own. The record received great praise from the likes of Consequence of Sound and Glide Magazine.
In March 2018 the band released their 3rd proper album, Adult Fear. All Music said of it,
“Songs as sneaky good as "David's Flower," as haltingly pretty as "Dixie Cups," and as insistent as the title track are the work of a first-rate modern psychedelic combo. Holy Wave are certainly that and Adult Fear is their third impressive album in a row, one that's essential to hear for anyone who likes hazy, trippy, and unassumingly captivating psychedelia.”
