HOLY HOLY DROP LIVE VIDEO FOR NEW SINGLE ‘A HEROINE’ & EMBARK ON EU/UK TOUR THIS WEEK

39

What a year it’s been for our favourite nostalgic indie rockers, Holy Holy!  Now armed with their hugely successful, critically acclaimed debut album, When The Storms Would Come, they’ve wowed audiences at every leg of their extensive, sold-out national tour of Aus, played a killer set at Splendour In The Grass, created a massive buzz abroad with their international album release, and will next week embark on their second tour of Europe and the UK for the year.  And before they head off, they’ve today gifted fans with a video for new single, A Heroine, filmed during the weekend of their two sold out headline shows at Howler, in Melbourne.

Explaining the inspiration behind the song, lead singer and songwriter Tim Carroll says, “I was listening to a Melvin Bragg podcast about the Ming Dynasty and I was struck with this idea about how over time and place it’s the same few struggles and triumphs that people have.  It’s love and loss and death. It’s rivers and roads and moving.  It’s trust, betrayal and growing old.  Whether in China in 1310 or Ireland in 1970 or us, now.”


The clip for A Heroine was a collaboration between producer/sound engineer Jonathan Steer and film maker Drew Dunlop.  “We’ve been working with Jonathan for a while now, he comes on the road to do sound for us and we’ve grown close.  He’s very thoughtful and knowledgeable and we like his bold approach to live mixing,” says Carroll.  “It’s nice to capture a bit of what the live show is like.”

Holy Holy is fronted by the songwriting team, vocalist/composer Timothy Carroll and guitarist/composer Oscar Dawson. They are joined on the road by permanent drummer Ryan Strathie (Hungry Kids Of Hungary, Andy Bull), touring bassist Graham Ritchie (Airling, Emma Louise), and Brisbane-based producer Matt Redlich as their touring keys player.

What the critics are saying about When The Storms Would Come:
“One of the standout albums to be released this year…Almost perfect” The Daily Telegraph
“When they’re fully engaged, they go at songs like Arcade Fire, 120 per cent committed.” news.com.au
“A killer of a record” Indieshuffle
“This is a brave debut album – a dense, sophisticated effort that attempts to blend Bowie with Band Of Horses, or Springsteen with Midlake. and ends up succeeding”  Best Before
