We're teaming up with The Reverberation Appreciation Society to bring you an exclusive, limited edition Fuzz Club variant of the new Holy Wave album
Austin psych-pop group Holy Wave have long been favourites of ours. Back in 2017 we invited them into the studio to record a Fuzz Club Session LP whilst they were in London and the following year we invited them over to the Netherlands for the first Fuzz Club Eindhoven. We’re now super excited to be teaming up with our friends at The Reverberation Appreciation Society to bring you a Fuzz Club Exclusive pressing of their incoming ‘Interloper’ LP, due for release July 3rd. Limited to 200 copies on Sea Blue vinyl, you can pre-order the record here.
‘Interloper’ [in-ter-lop-er] noun - “a person who becomes involved in a place or situation where they are not wanted or are considered not to belong.” What happens when the world beneath your feet changes so much that you feel like a stranger in your own shoes? This is the premise for the latest full-length record from Holy Wave.
Generating thick layers of sound that twist and turn through a complex labyrinth of reverb and echo, 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 self-assuring mantra that intends to break the cycle of the mundane. “Escapism” is a dream-like meditation that serves a reminder of how to stay grounded and “Interloper” serves as the centerpiece for this self-expanding record. It carries the ominous uncertainty of helplessly watching your environment become less and less like the place you used to know. With Interloper Holy Wave weaves together a contemplative psychedelic tapestry that serves as a guidebook for the diffident..
Since making the move to Austin in 2008, they have cemented themselves as a staple force in the international psychedelic rock scene receiving critical acclaim from Pitchfork, Consequence of Sound, Paste Magazine and giving performances at Levitation, Desert Daze, and Levitation France.
They toured the world, shared festival stages with acts such as Slowdive, Spiritualized, Froth, Kevin Morby and in 2020 they are prepared to release their latest body of work. You can pre-order the Fuzz Club pressing of 'Interloper' here.
