Worse For Wear

By: Laurie Gallardo

Track by singular track, Alain Paradis edges closer to the 2024 release of a new Holy Wire album. Paradis’ dark synth electro-pop creation from Brooklyn, now a full band in Austin, unveils another sonic piece coursing in an ’80s darkwave/post-punk vein, “Worse For Wear,” an irresistibly upbeat melody drawing you into melancholic brooding over a past paramour. “I wanted you to know / I don’t hold anything against you / and maybe I should / but I try not to…” So danceable, and yet so devastating. Perfect combo.

Hear the new single at Holy Wave’s show tonight, Friday Sept. 15, at Mohawk on the indoor stage, with sets by Austin noisegaze shredders Witches Exist, and the mad avant-electronic scientist that is Body Tape. Doors at 9 p.m. Holy hell, this is awesome.
