Holy Wave’s new record ‘Adult Fear’ arrives March 30 via The Reverberation Appreciation Society. The record sees the Austin quintet forging deeper into hazy synths and expansive melodies, coalescing their myriad of influences into a signature sound.

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 Levitation (Austin Psych Fest) and countless tours and festival appearances in the USA, Europe and Latin America, Holy Wave is poised to continue expanding into new spaces and places around the world. The band has 2 LPs and 3 EPs (The Reverberation Appreciation Society, Burger Records, Volante Discos) under their belt, and will release their 3rd LP ‘Adult Fear’ on March 30, 2018. Holy Wave’s debut 2014 album ‘Relax’ put the band on the map internationally and was well received by critics, including Pitchfork and Paste Magazine. ‘Relax’ saw the band testing their abilities in songwriting and sound-craft and was followed by ‘Freaks of Nurture’ in 2016, which showed great evolution in composition and melody, and saw Holy Wave finding a style and sound all their own. The record received praise from the likes of Consequence of Sound, and Glide Magazine. Holy Wave closed out 2017 with performances in Austin, Brazil, Argentina and Chile.

In support of ‘Adult Fear’, Holy Wave will tour the USA, Europe and Latin America extensively in 2018.
Ttotals have waited for the rest of the world to catch up. Psychedelic music is finally lurching towards a lasting place in popular culture. The word “psychedelic” itself may take on various meanings depending on who you’re talking to, and may even take its fair share of abuse - yet it has persisted.

Based in Nashville, Ttotals have been stoically ensuring that the genre remains relevant in Music City going on several years. Founded in 2009 by Brian Miles, a Nashville - native, Ttotals have employed an ever shifting cast of exceptional musicians in their eight years as a band. Their latest release, We Are the Outer Blues, sees newcomers Dylan Frost and Austin Edwards rounding out the Ttotals lineup alongside Miles, as well as making their first contributions to Ttotals’ catalog. Conceived out of a desire to bring avant garde principles to psychedelic music, Ttotals’ newest release continues to bring that original idea closer to reality. Over four songs, the trio establishes a sound that honors a lineage established by 13 Floor Elevators and continued later by Spaceman 3 without forgetting that Ttotals exists in the present. The songs themselves are driving and meditative, with riffs that become like chants, often expanding their presence over the entirety of the song.

“Ttotals is a celebration of repetition and reflection. We want it to be an introspective experience for listeners."

We Are the Outer Blues follows Ttotals’ 2014 full-length, Let Everything Come Through, which Psychedelic Baby Mag called, “an absolute trip in the outer stratosphere of consciousness.” We Are the Outer Blues pursues that description as a mantra, establishing a sound that will continue to be explored on future releases.“We Are the Outer Blues is a continuation of a sound we’ve been mining and developing for years,” Miles said. “We hope our listeners will see the lineage of psychedelic music carried forward in our own music.”
