San Francisco band Hot Flash Heat Wave rose to prominence in the Bay Area music scene in 2015 with the release of their Gutter Girl music video, from their debut album Neapolitan, with its accompanying video eventually trending on Reddit. Their versatile sound, at times reminiscent of psychedelia, dream pop, and post-punk, demonstrates a dynamic range of songwriting prowess centered around consistently infectious, sun-soaked melodies and guitar hooks.
HFHW formed in Davis, California as a noise collaboration between Adam Abildgaard and Nick Duffy in 2010, adding Ted Davis in the following years amidst a series of lineup
changes. Renouncing the traditional front-manned format of most contemporary bands, the members instead each contribute songs and share the lead.
Continuing their habit of self-reinvention, the band has generated growing excitement with a series of ambitious new singles from their forthcoming EP Mood Ring, set to release early 2019 on Empire. The new material teases a dreamier, more psychedelic and indulgent sound, and has landed the group spots on playlists like Pollen, Bedroom Pop, New Music
Friday, and All New Indie. Their latest single ‘Sky So Blue’, described as “a cloud-wandering, escapist pop epic, that isn’t afraid of sounding like the aural equivalent of sticking your head
into a candy floss maker” (God Is In The TV Zine, UK) made its way to the Hot Tracks list on the front page of Apple Music. 2019 promises to be an exciting year for the band, as they
embark on their first headline runs around the USA and Europe.
