Holy Wave // Captain Süün // Insomnichord

— The Lanes
Texan indie psych-enthusiast Holy Wave making their comeback to Bristol after 4 years!
price: Headfirst Tickets


Lysergic Limes is super stoked to welcome back Holy Wave after 4 years since their last-minute debut show in Bristol!


Holy Wave

Holy Wave is a band of multi-instrumentalists from Austin, TX. The band’s sound has evolved into a unique blend of sun baked surf-psychedelia. Holy Wave creates a brand of psych that brings to mind fellow Texans like The 13th Floor Elevators and modern contemporaries like The Black Angels and Night Beats, dyed in carefully constructed noise with an attention to detail echoing the work of shoegaze influences like My Bloody Valentine and Spectrum.

Captain Süün

Formed via the spirit of adolescent excitement in Bristol at the tail end of 2016, Captain Süün are a band well and truly beyond their tender years. Following a handful of gigs in 2017 - and a raucous set at Bristol Psych Fest’s opening event in July - they immediately caught the attention of revered Stolen Body Records, with a deal soon struck.
The first fruit to bear from this relationship, the Beach Burrito EP, is a laser-targeted deto- nation of garage-psych, capable of putting most of their grizzled garage-psych elders to shame. Breezy jangle-pop gives way to ruthless fuzz breakdowns, and all of it rips hard enough to satisfy even the most discerning of the genre’s broad church.
The quartet, whose expansive appreciation for psych far exceeds their tender years, recognise the importance of songs above all else. Frontman Dan Dale - a songwriter first and foremost - is incredibly skilled at tapping the well of the Lizard King, as well as influ- ences ranging from John Martyn to The Byrds. Guitarist Harrison Newman holds an un- matchable stage presence, whilst drummer Nathan McLaren-Stewart and bassist Luciano Narcisi keep a steady yet provoking pace. The menacing and spacious ‘Amber’ and the Segall-infused stomper ‘Skyline’ conclusively prove that the Bristolian upstarts aren’t at all concerned with having big shoes to fill.
