The San Francisco trio of Adam Abildgaard, Nick Duffy, and Ted Davis have built a loyal following and constant buzz over the last several years, with the 2019 EP ‘Mood Ring’ standing as their most kaleidoscopic work to date. Merging the quintessential melodies of pop’s past with contemporary touches to forge something truly unique, Hot Flash Heat Wave is just starting to create their own sonic world.
Last year’s EP launched the group into a realm entirely different from their previous catalogue. It is their truest-to-heart release yet, synthesizing a wide range of influences encompassing My Bloody Valentine, Frank Ocean, New Order, and Toro y Moi into something that sounds new and refreshing. Mood Ring’s lead single “Glo Ride” bounces with a slight R&B tilt against a dark, trippy atmosphere, while “Sky So Blue” finds the band spiralling into full-on psychedelia, complete with layers of spell-casting keyboards and a wonderfully zonked-out breakdown.
And the future only seems brighter from here: with September’s single ‘Grudge’ teasing a 2021 LP, Hot Flash Heat Wave is preparing for the next step up the staircase in their colorful sonic journey, with determination to elevate their craft in the process.
Paul Cherry is a musician and DJ from Chicago who achieved some success after the release of his first LP Flavour in 2018. After playing for years developing his mid-fi jazz-pop sound in the local Chicago garage and bar scene which brought up other artists like Twin Peaks, Smith Westerns, Whitney, and Mild High Club, The album cycle for Flavour took Paul on tour for almost 2 years straight, playing 300+ shows in the US, Canada and Europe.
As the Covid-19 pandemic halted all touring and live music, Cherry was able to pause and focus on what really mattered to him in music, and spent the entirety of 2020 in lockdown creating his follow up to Flavour and 2nd LP, Back on the Music. Trying to grow up and grow into a newer sound that takes the songwriting elements of classic songs and blends them with universal themes of the modern age, trying to retain elements of jazz and off-kilter pop harmony while keeping the songs approachable and relatable. Back on the Music is expected to be released in September 2021 under the Sunset Music Co. Label based in Taiwan.
