Temple Waves – “Snake Hunt”


“Snake Hunt” presents the ravishing instrumental rock sound of Temple Waves, a band based in Honolulu, Hawaii. Their colorful sound spans from surf-friendly serenity to western-y, desert-set twanginess — inspired by a variety of scenes, from surf/skate culture to spaghetti-western cinema classics. Birthed from a jam between the act’s bassist and guitarist, “Snake Hunt” represents the project’s fourth single, and excels with a diverse psych-rock appeal — from the initial organ-touched psychedelic contemplation to surf-friendly invigoration at the two-minute turn. “Snake Hunt” has us firmly anticipating whatever’s next from Temple Waves.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Emerging Singles’ Spotify playlist.
