HOLY HOLY – SINGLE REVIEW

Holy Holy – Darwinism 
Holy Holy - Darwinism


Release Date: Out Now

Aussie outfit Holy Holy are coming across to kick up a storm in Europe this Autumn so it’s only fair that us Europeans get a fix on what they sound like before they get here (apologies to any Australian readers but they’re doing a massive tour in November so you’re getting more than your fair share). New single ‘Darwinism’ is a beefy slice of indie-pop that combines the slick smoothness of the Killers or the Strokes with the darkness and despair of the National or Interpol. Interested? You should be. This is heavyweight stuff with rumbling drums, wall-to-wall guitars and there’s even a brass section before we get to an almighty guitar solo that actually makes my eardrums vibrate. For a song named after the concept of evolution, ‘Darwinism’ has something heavenly about it but always with the threat of the underworld bubbling under the surface.
