Holy Wave‘s new album, Five Of Cups, finds the Austin Psych Rock band pushing its sound into “nocturnal new territory.” The full record is out this Friday, August 4th, 2023 via Suicide Squeeze Records. Their final single “The Darkest Timeline” is out now, with a video directed by band-member Ryan Fuson that highlights the musicianship of the artists involved.

The song is aided by a guest feature from Mexican Shoegaze artists Lorelle Meets The Obsolete. The band also have several upcoming US + UK/EU tour dates scheduled August through December 2023.

On the track, band member Fuson offers: 

We had been working on this song since the pandemic and had recorded an original version with Kyle singing. Sometime during the pandemic, we asked Lorelle Meets the Obsolete to add some stuff, and you hear the version with all of us in it. It was our first time writing a song with someone outside the band singing, and it felt so fresh and exciting. It is not the last time you will hear of a collaboration between us.

On the video, Fuson adds:

We had initially wanted to do a visualizer with some footage of us playing the song, but as we started filming it and concepts like focusing only on hands started forming, we realized that we were going to have to make a full video; it was going to be too hard only to use a few seconds of the footage we got. We filmed all our parts here in Austin, TX, and Lorelle did their parts in Ensenada, MX.
