Native Tongue writer Oscar Dawson has released a new album with his project Holy Holy.
The album is the follow up to “When The Storms Would Come”, which debuted at #11 on the ARIA chart, spawned 7 songs on high rotation on Triple J, and had the duo play several sold out tours across the country and supports with Vance Joy, The Preatures & Boy & Bear, along with many festival tours including Splendour in the Grass & Falls Festival.
HOLY HOLY have somehow both undone and strengthened listener preconceptions that may have established themselves with their acclaimed debut album, “When The Storms Would Come”. Strengthened, in that melody rules all in “PAINT” as it does in Storms – both vocal and guitar alike, each infliction is settled firmly and boldly in a bed of compelling texture. Undone, in how it is that texture that binds all aspects of melody, harmony and form that is often completely unexpected, but most welcome. The album is familiar, a comfort – yet refreshing, and exciting all at once. Oscar Dawson, lead guitarist and founding member of HOLY HOLY, reflects on the new songs, “PAINT was truly a lifetime in the making. All good records are…the themes from our lives, our practice, our instruments, our styles, and our influences, have been filtering in for years and this is the best job we could do of distilling them.”
“PAINT” is out now via Wonderlick/Sony Music Australia.
