Freak Heat Waves (2014)

Pender Island, BC / Canada

Often times a band’s name is about as relevant as their MySpace page. In the case of Victoria trio, Freak Heat Waves, it represents — intentionally or not — a close interpretation of the band’s motif, as elements of post-punk and Krautrock swelter in a measured pace of laid-back vocals and sunny riffs. Stay hydrated, friends.
