Los Angeles electro-pop duo Antiwave have released their new single “Holiday Heart”.
Penned as the first of many single releases to come, the LA/Long Beach based group premiered the single this week via tastemaker music blog Surviving The Golden Age. The track will be available this Friday (10/7) via online retailers. Antiwave crafts nostalgia-laced tracks with trip hop, shoegaze and pop elements woven in. The duo is composed of singer/guitarist Heather Baker and guitarist Rachel Sinfield. Antiwave writes music that draws influence from the 80’s, 90’s and adds their own unique, modern sound. “Holiday Heart” was self-produced and engineered by Baker and mixed by Nathan Jenkins.
“Our music is a culmination of our favorite styles we grew up listening to including bands like The Cure, The Sneaker Pimps, Air, Cocteau Twins and Garbage” says Baker. “Ray and I have this kinetic musical connection. Antiwave has become our biggest source of expression and inspiration, in a way, it makes us feel nostalgic.” “Holiday Heart,” in short, is inspired by the overwhelming feeling I think we all encounter that the past was filled with good times or was easier. This leads to the direct or indirect selective remembrance of moments in our lives. Yet we are products of the great pain and pleasure we endure, whether we know it or not.” – Heather Baker / Antiwave
