[Video] HOLY HOLY - Darwinism
Directed and produced by Plex Goodwin, Australian duo HOLY HOLY share the video to new single 'Darwinism'.
Taken from their second album - set for release in 2017 - 'Darwinism' is an evocative tune that is as evolutionary for the band as the name suggests.
HOLY HOLY will be hitting the road in Septemberr, kicking off in Amsterdam on September 21, before heading to the UK to play shows in London and Leeds.
Of the new track, lyricist Timothy Carroll says: “We built the song around that opening riff which I came up with while we were on tour last year. I remember the boys were all asleep in the apartment and I was looking for a place to play so I locked myself in the bathroom and was making some recordings on my phone. I felt straight away it could work as a full band track…”
Weeks later, Carroll and Oscar Dawson guitarist, co-songwriter and co-founder with Carroll) explored the idea further in a tiny studio set-up in London in between shows on tour. “Oscar wrote a score and we had Ross Irwin and Kieran Conrau come in a lay down this big sweeping horn part.”
The film clip for the song is appropriately stark, consisting of entirely black and white visuals, and an unadulterated mix of retro film and stunning live footage of the band in their element.
HOLY HOLY will be supported by Saint Agnes in London, and Edgar Duke in Leeds.
