There’s a dark wave crashing over the breakers. Reverb dripping, drums pounding the shore…it’s the Electric Heaters! The Heaters play Retro-sonic Surf Noir. Think Ventures meet Khruangbin. Think dark, moody, and groovy instrumental music for the 21st Century. Led by guitarist Matt Heaton and his reverb drenched guitar twang, the Heaters mix familiar sounds with just the rich modern ingredients—like a perfect cocktail, their musical mixology goes down just right.
Expect whiffs of Morricone, the Raybeats, Booker T, as well as the Atlantics and Link Wray. Surf music for the cold north Atlantic, equal parts Dick Dale and Dennis Lehane. Third wave surf that hasn’t forgotten the winter of 2015.
