ust ahead of their co-headlining tour with No Vacation, San Francisco’s Hot Flash Heat Wave are back with “Glo Ride” – an ethereal new single that seamlessly borrows from multiple genres to form one cohesive, beautiful track perfect for the onset of Spring. Hazy synths and soothing vocals set the tone on “Glo Ride”, accompanied by perfectly placed guitars and a ride-along bassline set over hypnotic percussion. With each listen you can hear more defined influences ranging from Trip Hop to Alternative Pop and Indie Rock – each bringing something special to “Glo Ride”. You can stream the track now on Soundcloud or Spotify.
Adam Abildgaard (Guitar) about “Glo Ride”:
The unknown is a frightening concept in most people’s lives. Being unsure of your direction or wondering if your passions are valid enough to pursue can stop you from doing what you love or trying new things. Since childhood we are told to buckle down and find a career that will make money and lead to success, to take the reigns and make a 5 year plan. In ‘Glo Ride’ we assume the passenger’s point of view, it’s about embracing the unknown and letting it take us for a ride. Though setting goals and having purpose in one’s life is important, it is equally necessary to know when to sit back and indulge in the moment. I tend to find when I relinquish control and let my expectations melt away I can truly experience the beauty of life and enjoy the journey it has in store for me through the fog and darkness.
Hot Flash Heat Wave are about to embark on a co-headlining with fellow San Franciscans, No Vacation. The tour will begin early next week in the Bay area before moving south down the Pacific Coast including a sold out show at the Hi-Hat in Los Angeles on March 9th. From there the band will be participating in the SXSW Music Conference in Austin, Texas before hitting major markets in the midwest and northeast – including Chicago, New York, Philadelphia and a handful of other cities. Full tour dates are listed below and tickets are available here.
