HOT FLASH HEAT WAVE

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.

SMALL CRUSH

Small crush began in Logan Hammon’s bedroom when she was 13 years old writing songs on her dads old guitar and recording covers on garage band. In her sophomore year of high school, she found some friends in jazz band class to help fulfill her dream of playing her songs in a full band. Together the band began playing little shows at 924 gilman and other DIY spaces. In 2018 the band released an EP that caught the attention of a local Bay Area label Asian Man Records and recorded a full length the year after. Since then the band has grown to touring and playing venues she has always admired. Through it all the band has made the joy of playing music and having fun the most important thing.

SIMILAR KIND

Similar Kind is an indie pop band from Norwalk, CT. It originated as just a few friends jamming in a garage and has blossomed into a five piece band playing shows all over the northeast. Similar Kind has played with acts such as Sunflower Bean, Bad Bad Hats, Charly Bliss, & more. The band is currently working on a follow up EP to their debut “Faces & Places” a project chock-full of indie pop, reminiscent of The Cure and Talking Heads, described as “dance-ready synth-pop. equal parts R&B, pop, and indie rock, the EP is a highly-polished, thoroughly-confident release”. The band has released various singles throughout 2020 with “Nobody Loves You” & “Lost & Lonely” being the latest two!
