Soaked Debuts Summer Surf Punk Splash with “Julia”
Psychedelic videos, college dropouts, slacker vibes all swirl together in the Austin-based surf punk band, Soaked. A true Austin creation, Soaked formed after guitarists Jimmy Minter and Maxx Eaton met hanging around East side music hotbeds like Hotel Vegas. Soaked springs from the same vein as other mischievous surf bands like Jacuzzi Boys, Diarrhea Planet, FIDLAR, and Wavves. However, the high energy live shows and sugary pop melodies carve a unique sound that got the attention of Yippee Ki Yay Records who helped release the band’s debut album, I DON’T WANNA WAKE UP TODAY. Warm reverb emanates from the simplistic yet addictive guitar sound, while the good-natured attitude of the band makes their care-free charm somewhat irresistible. A perfect score to the languid and balmy Austin Summer weather, Soaked is soon to be creeping through your poolside speakers.
