Hot Curl take their psych pop to Alphaville tonight (04.17)

Hot Curl take their psych pop to Alphaville tonight (04.17)

Hot Curl is a psychedelic surf rock outfit that nicely weaves together catchy, jangly guitars riffs in the style of bands like DIIV or Beach Fossils. They offer the kind of groovy instrumental template – round bass, two reverb soaked guitars, and tight, tom-heavy drums – that acts as sonic unit to be manipulated in a million different ways. In their debut EP 'Beached,' the band has a number of classic surfy formulae they tend to return to after forays into into the psychedelic unknown, and single "Walk Away" (streaming) perfectly examplifies that. The instruments work around a centered guitar hook, deviating into dissonance only to drive themselves home at just the right moments. Hot Curl will be performing at Alphaville tonight (April 17th). - Andrew Strader
