Holy Holy are one of Australia’s most exciting bands.
Their 2015 debut, When The Storms Would Come was a sign of things to come. And now, on Paint, they’ve come good. Or, should I say, even better.
Opener ‘That Message’ is everything that’s great about local music at the moment. It’s airy with vaguely psych-synth pairings and good, old-school rock vibes. This produces a directional sound that speaks of where they’re going. It reminds me of the best moments from Hungry Kids of Hungary, which is no mistake seeing as they’ve worked with them.
A solid album from start to finish and this IS where my money is in 2017.
