Recognized by fans worldwide and media authorities such as Alternative Press, Paste Music & Daytrotter, and AllMusic, The Racing Pulses have been filling festival grounds and venues since 2012 with catchy and intelligent rock music. An EP released in 2014 and news of electrifying performances rapidly lead to interest from prominent venues and festivals across the United States, including Maxwell’s in New Jersey and Summerfest in Wisconsin. In 2017, the first official album by The Racing Pulses, Nothing to Write Home About, was released. Attracting both popular and critical acclaim, it climbed up Billboard charts. Legendary rock star and radio host Genya Ravan also spun the song "King or Pawn?” during her radio program on the Underground Garage Sirius XM channel. The summer of 2018 brought international exposure as a two-month tour in Bulgaria captivated audiences. Major television network bTV invited The Racing Pulses to appear on hit daytime talk show “Преди обед” (Before Noon), where an interview and the live television debut performance of “Bookends” took place on July 13th. Fanfare continued into September, with a four-page spread on The Racing Pulses appearing in the print edition of OK! Magazine Bulgaria. Many newspapers and online media sources including TRUD, Kambana, and Region, profiled the band. Highlights of the tour included a Sofar Sounds performance in Sofia, a concert at the Varna Sea Garden, and a performance in front of hundreds at the 125th Jubilee of Pirdop by the ancient Elenska Basilica. The Racing Pulses shared a new single in 2019. The track - “Go, Forward!” - was written for Wisconsin’s new professional soccer team, Forward Madison FC. The following month, the group performed at Breese Stevens Field. A new single from The Racing Pulses – “Hidden Away From the Sunlight” – was released in late 2023, and is, unlike the title suggests, garnering attention from alternative rock fans. Packed with fast bass notes, metallic guitar tones, searing synth lines, and drum beats which are like a sonic stampede at some points, the song is one of the heaviest cuts to be released by the musical project based in Madison, Wisconsin. Originally created for a video game music contest where winning songs became part of the soundtrack of Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty, “Hidden Away From the Sunlight” has been energizing listeners across the world.
"The Racing Pulses may be new to the Madison scene, but the alt rock trio is already making some noise nationally. The group's debut album, Nothing to Write Home About, hit the Billboard regional Heatseekers chart in June, and in July landed on the independent albums sales chart. Oh, and they also took the title of favorite rock band."
“The Racing Pulses make garage rock music that is very groove-able.”
