Holy Wave have just released their jangly, haunting new psychedelic track “Nothing In The Dark” and this is an incredible follow-up to “Bog Song”. The band has a knack for producing catchy and melodic tracks that stay true to their psychedelic brand. The band is true to their brand and thoughtful in their compositions.

FEELS: warm and tingly
SOUNDS: like Bob Dylan and Tame Impala had a child

On the track, band member, Cook offers: “Nothing in the Dark is about how easy it is to let fear take over and control what you do and don’t do, how distractions can keep you from the things you want or disguise themselves as what you want. But when the light disappears from your life, like shadows, the distractions fade away, and you’re left with just yourself and the darkness. So I guess the song is about moving past the fear of the shadows; you can see in the light so that you don’t end up sitting alone in the dark.”

On the video, band member, Fuson offers: We all acted in the video, but we also did the set design and all the props. Since it was a super small budget, we had to wear a bunch of hats to afford to pay the people who were good at their jobs, haha.

The director Vanessa Pla also made some mean carnitas for the crew. They were fire.”
