Portland, Oregon’s BLACKWATER HOLYLIGHT has been rapidly rising out of the heavy rock underground since the release of their phenomenal S/T debut in April.
Issued via RidingEasy Records, the album has received nearly unanimous press praise and continues to win new fans over daily. If you somehow missed the release, or perhaps think it is time to revisit the record, we are including a stream of it here today.
Accompanying it, Riff Relevant is sharing a newly-released official video from the band, for the album’s “Wave Of Conscience” track. The song is a hypnotically alluring composition, possessing strong psychedelic nuances, hazy aural textures, and engrossing vocals.

08/03 Nevada City, CA @ Cooper’s
