Tomorrow, San Francisco indie pop trio Scorching Flash Warmth Wave are set to share their very long-awaited third album, Sportswear. Arriving immediately after the exploratory psychedelic path of their 2019 EP, Temper Ring, their new report sees the trio of Adam Abildgaard, Nick Duffy, and Ted Davis departing even more than ever before from their garage rock roots. The sharp indie rock hooks are now fused with influences pulled from disparate sources these as new wave, club lifestyle, and R&B. Currently you can get an early hear to the band’s newest experiment under, premiering early with Beneath the Radar.
Sportswear sees the band spinning out in new and thrilling instructions, shifting very easily in between styles and genres with each keep track of. “Yesterday” opens the report on a roomy synthwave soundscape, recalling the futurist neon-soaked side of ‘80s synth pop. Conversely, tracks like “Bay Boys” enjoy with the darker textures of moody goth rock like Depeche Mode when prior singles “Vampires,” “Grudge,” and “m o t i o n s,” take a look at shimmering new wave synths and psych pop grooves.
Later on in the document, “Like Practically nothing Else” dives further more into the band’s psychedelic side, providing moments of crushing distortion in advance of the monitor just as swiftly spirals off into a twinkling kaleidoscopic haze of melody. Ultimately, “Bridge to Nowhere” is a amazingly potent dance observe, full with pounding beats, skittering rhythms, and an infectious piano hook.
By it’s close, Sportswear feels like it’s operating on a new amount of creative eyesight, far surpassing anything the band have tried in advance of. As the band describes, “Sportswear is a globe of its have, a vision that encompasses not just music, but artwork, storytelling and trend as nicely. Sonically we felt drawn to aspects from early goth, new wave, and property, getting them by means of our filter of indie, psychedelia, r&b and modern pop. We have been also motivated by the style and hyper-individualism of late 90s club lifestyle and anime. The name Sportswear is a cheeky nod to this tapestry of influences and the disambiguation of tendencies and subculture, as they develop into commodified for mass attractiveness and eliminate their deeper that means. Lyrically the report speaks to our own everyday living struggles and soul searchings as very well as existential sensations and narrations.”
