Hot Flash Heat Wave met during High School while playing in respective bands at friend's garage shows. Ted, Adam and Nathaniel played in chill-wave projects until coming together in San Francisco just over a year ago as Hot Flash Heat Wave. They create melodically upbeat, hook-filled garage rock, referencing a range of influences from Girls and the Beach Boys, to Santo & Johnny and Weezer. Their style is partially a tongue and cheek nod to the dreamy, lo-fi vibes of the “chill-wave” movement, as contrasted by the more sunny, sweltering sound of their own jams (“heat-wave”).
Comprised of 4 high school best friends living, writing, and recording under the same roof, Hot Flash is set to release their debut record Neapolitan on September 11th.
