Delivering songs slathered in reverb and fuzz and vocals processed to the point of incoherence, Heaters are exactly what one looks for in a psychedelic-inspired garage band. Just two years old, the band got together when high school buddies Andrew Tamlyn and Nolan Krebs moved to Grand Rapids, Michigan. After meeting a musically inclined next-door neighbor in Joshua Korf, the trio quickly started writing tunes steeped in surfy guitar and energetic hooks. The prolific crew released three EPs in 2014 (although Solstice came in at an album-length eight songs) and drew the attention of Brooklyn’s psych-heavy Beyond Beyond is Beyond Records, which will release the band’s first proper full-length, Holy Water Pool, in September. In the meantime, they’re crisscrossing the country to deliver shimmering guitar workouts from coast to coast, including a free gig here in Spokane.
