    Haute Tension is a band that believes in bringing back raw visceral energy into live music, all the while paying homage to their swampy tropical landscape of Florida. Their sophisticated sound resonates with a wide range of audiences who can expect to hear surf-y Dick Dale style guitar, and a dynamic influence of genres from garage to punk, classic rock, and blues.
