Wurve

 


Memory Bleach is the debut album from the four-piece band WURVE of Austin, Texas whose name is informally defined as a rainbow shaped curve swirling into a last second drop with seemingly chaotic yet fluid kineticism. Dwelling somewhere between bright and dark, sound features a colorful spectrum of hard hitting feel-good rhythms punctuated by spiraling melodies, heady vocals, heavy guitar tonalities, and swells of reverb channeling Jesus and Mary Chain noise-pop sensibilities with experimental elements gleaned from Austin’s rich homegrown history of psychedelia.

The group took shape in Alex Capistran’s home—actually an Austin garage where he was crashing at the time while continuing to work on his own material. He reached out to drummer Will Rock whom he had played with in a group a few years prior, the two began jamming to some of the songs, and additional members were brought in culminating forming the basis for what they then called “Teevee”.

Under this moniker, they played their first show at Hotel Vegas and soon thereafter released their first self-titled EP effort in 2017 which received immediately positive response in the Texas psych community. It was quickly followed up with another 4-track EP entitled “Bask” featuring the track “Junk Driver”.

In 2018, the band renamed themselves WURVE, and set up a Tascam 388 in the very tight
quarters in the kitchen of a friend’s studio apartment where they tracked drums, bass, vocals, and guitars forming the tracks for their first full-length album coming out March 15th, 2019 on Yippee Ki Yay Records and Burger Records.

Said Alex of the album, “ Memory Bleach is essentially a Burning Ceremony. The songs on there are fragments of different experiences weather it be from my personal life or something I once read. There is a lot we go through as individuals and sometimes you just have to let things go. This is my way of letting go and hypothetically tossing the past into a blaze and making room for the future.”
