HOLY HOLY are on the cusp of releasing their third record, which is unlike anything you’ve heard from the acclaimed duo before. They dropped first single from the LP, ‘Faces’, in Sept 2018, sold out their biggest headline shows to date, and are soon to release single two, ‘Teach Me About Dying’, ahead of the national Groovin The Moo tour.
Faces hit #1 most played on triple j in October 2018, spins on Radio 1 in the UK (including Jack Saunders Next Wave Act), playlisted on Radio X, had countless playlist additions, and over 1,400,000 streams in just six months. The song was produced by Oscar Dawson & Timothy Carroll from Holy Holy and mixed by Rich Costey (Arctic Monkeys, Chvrches, Franz Ferdinand).
Frontman Tim Carroll describes ‘Teach Me About Dying’ as, “an exploration of the way in which our mortality affects our lives. Bittersweet though it is, death imbues life with urgency and clarity and a sense that time is precious. And so, although it is by definition morbid, remembering that we will all die is actually a really important tenant by which to live.”
HOLY HOLY released their sophomore record “PAINT” in February 2017, with a #7 Aria Chart debut in Australia, and released debut ‘When The Storms Would Come’ in July 2015. They’ve had 11 songs on rotation on triple j in Australia, with the stunning “True Lovers” hitting #40 in triple j’s Hottest 100 and reaching GOLD sales in January 2019. They’ve sold out numerous headline tours across Australia, played festivals such as Splendour, Falls, Bluesfest, Woodford, and Yours & Owls, as well as touring three times through the UK, The Netherlands, Germany and Spain, selling out 3 London shows and playing festivals such as Primavera, London Calling, The Great Escape, Liverpool Music Week and Reeperbahn.
