New Audio: HEATERS’ Immersive and Reverb-Heavy, New Single “Gum Drop”

If you’ve been frequenting JOVM over the better part of this year, you may have come across a post or two on the Grand Rapids, MI-based psych rock trio HEATERS. Comprised of Andrew Tamlyn, Nolan Krebs and Joshua Korf, the band can trace their origins to when founding members Tamilyn and Krebs relocated to Grand Rapids to start a music project together. Korf, who was coincidentally their next door neighbor, was recruited to flesh out the band’s sound. With the release of a couple of singles, an appearance on Stolen Body’s Vegetarian Meat psych compilation and the release of their debut EP, Solstice, the trio received national attention, which continued the release of the “Mean Green”/“Levitate Thigh” 7 inch earlier this year through Beyond Beyond Is Beyond Records.

September 25 marks the official release of the Grand Rapids, MI-based trio’s much-anticipated full-length release, Holy Water Pool and the album’s latest single “Gum Drop” reveals a subtle refinement of their sound, as this particular single sounds as though it draws influence from Pink Floyd‘s “Breathe” as the song is consists of swirling guitar chords played through reverb with vocals fed through reverb as well to create a kaleidoscopic, towering and bracing wall of sound that’s atmospheric and immersive.
