HOLY HOLY Announce National Tour

Enigmatic duo HOLY HOLY have just released a new single, Darwinism, and have announced a national tour in support of it hitting audiences.

Their tour will hit all major Australian cities and some regional venues for those who can’t travel, or the trip is too far.

HOLY HOLY will be on the road in November, supported by I Know Leopard (replaced by Dream Rimmy in WA), and Alex L’Estrange, kicking off in Adelaide on November 3 moving through Bunbury, Perth, Fremantle, Melbourne, Geelong, Ballarat, Newcastle, Sydney, Wollongong, Canberra, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast and finishing up in Brisbane on November 26.

Their press release had this to say of Darwinism:

“Darwinism is a car crash of melody; a track of blistering energy.  Lead vocalist and guitarist, Tim Carroll’s lyrics have a way of cutting through, and Darwinism is no different, bringing to life a couple’s relationship juxtaposed against the song’s driving riffs and melodic lines.

Of the new track, 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.  “Later Oscar wrote a score and we had Ross Irwin and Kieran Conrau come in a lay down this big sweeping horn part.”  Speaking of its effusive energy, Dawson enthuses “The horns are a fresh thing for us. We wanted the horns to be textural, using a band like The National or Radiohead as examples.” Pitch-shifting effects pedals, and other such tools, help provide new tones and straddle the balance between authentic and synthetic.”
