Hot Flash Heat Wave – “Mood Ring” Review

Evan Gardi

Mood Ring by Hot Flash Heat Wave is quite a heavy hitter for an EP. The band takes aspects of psychedelia, dream indie/pop, and garage/surf rock, and beautifully strings them all together to make this EP. Compared to their previous releases, Mood Ring follows the dreamy route rather than garage/surf rock. This EP reminds me of Tame Impala’s Lonerism, especially in the first two tracks “Floating” and “Head in the Clouds”. The band uses a fantastic combo of synth and guitar, which make the songs feel intense and overpowering in a great way. Based on this EP, I am extremely excited to see what Hot Flash Heat Wave has to offer in the coming years.
