Holy WOW! - "Nebulas" | Reactions | LIVING LIFE FEARLESS
Community Rating6 Votes4.5

“Nebulas” by Holy WOW! is a powerful, spacey garage rock song that evokes a strange mix of Depeche Mode and Pink Floyd.

NYC-based Holy WOW! strike you as a well-rounded band, with a distinctive sound that feels like an ethereal electro-rock cohesion of diverse musical elements. The elongated, laid-back vocals are extremely reminiscent of those of Depeche Mode’s Dave Gahan, whereas the swelling guitar hooks and sections have a pinch of David Gilmour in them, and that is more than enough to strike a chord. The vocals and guitars are like two dance partners, each taking turns to deliver strong, musical punches to the catchy beat and bad-ass baseline. This beautiful back-and-forth creates a nice, contagious dynamic that washes over you, and is further complemented by the video.

The music video for "Orange is for Love," just like the actual song, is like a David Lynch film, meant to be experienced rather than analyzed.Read full review

"I Want You, I Want You Too" is the kind of song you can dance to in the club or daydream to at home. A gently melancholic, electro-pop street-beat gem.Read full review

If you have to put a label on "Freaks" and "Clouds Collide," it would be Neo-Classicism. But as with most experimental, great music, labels don't suffice.Read full review

The music video has some stylish trippiness to it as well which perfectly complements the music. Punchy, short shots of Holy WOW! blend with a whirlpool of abstract, cosmic visuals that feel as if they emanate from the music itself. The choice of images is imaginative, yet far from random or chaotic, creating an otherworldy synergy with the already spacey music that sucks you in a distant, dreamy world, replete with layers and layers of melodies.

“Nebulas” reveals Holy WOW!’s sense of style and intuition for what works,  in both music and the visuals to go with it.

Conclusion
"Nebulas" by Holy WOW! is a trippy garage rock song with a video to match, the two evoking a strange, spacey mix of Depeche Mode and Pink Floyd.
