Urban Heat are a 3-piece American post-punk band from Austin, TX. Their sound fuses dark 80’s stylings with modern flourishes, with Jonathan Horstmann’s throaty baritone delivering musings on existence and romanticism against an unrelenting industrial gothic pulse. Joined on stage by Kevin Naquin and Paxel Foley, Urban Heat´s live show is undeniably energetic and engaging, earning them slots at Austin’s Levitation and Seattle´s Freakout Fest in 2021. They released 6 singles between 2019 and 2022 and while the pandemic saw their SXSW 2020 performance canceled, they returned in 2022 as official artists.
This year has brought exponential growth to the band. Atomic Music Group took Urban Heat on for North American booking and their first national tour is planned for the fall. They were selected as Black Fret grant recipients and are featured as KUTX 98.9’s Artist of the Month for July. The band will be playing the Austin City Limits festival in October. The Wellness EP was released on Spaceflight Records on July 26, 2022. “A lightning rod of dark electro/proto-punk/new wave/synth wave/part goth/part industrial sound that is all the things but… simultaneously transcending them into something fresher.” – Laurie Gallardo, KUTX 98.9
