HOLY HOLY ANNOUNCE NATIONAL HEADLINE TOUR
Ahead of the release of their third studio album, My Own Pool of Light (now available Friday 2 August via Wonderlick Recordings), HOLY HOLY today announce a 15-date national headline tour, including the Roundhouse on Friday 18 October.
Renowned for their extraordinary live performances, this September, October and November will see HOLY HOLY playing some of their biggest venues to date, visiting both capital cities and regional centres. This news is paired with the release of album track Frida.
Named after vocalist Timothy Carroll’s daughter, the magnetic Frida discusses the manner in which gender stereotypes are perpetuated in daily life, even down to the books we read to our children. The album track follows on from latest single Teach Me About Dying. First single Faces has been streamed almost 2 million times, claimed the #1 most played position on triple j, received support from the UK’s BBC Radio 1 and was playlisted on Radio X in the UK.
My Own Pool of Light is an undiluted representation of HOLY HOLY’S vision, from the songwriting to the recording process and, ultimately, their decision to self produce. It’s an album that finds guitarist Oscar Dawson and vocalist Timothy Carroll incorporating new sounds and fresh ideas. In the process they redefine exactly what kind of band they are without sacrificing the key elements – soaring melodies, lush instrumental textures, the beguiling mix of jubilance and melancholy, Carroll’s affecting lyrics – that have made them one of Australia’s most popular acts.
“We always want to make music that’s exciting and interesting, and that makes you feel something, and takes risks,” says Carroll. “This is the album we wanted to make.”
