hmv's Next Big Thing... #79 Holy Now
Every Wednesday we recommend a brand new artist who we think you're going to love. This week we bring you Swedish foursome Holy Now...
Who Are They?
Holy Now hail from Gothenburg and consist of Julia Olander, Ylva Holmdahl, Samuel Von Bahr and Hampus Eiderström Swahn. They've just recorded their second EP after the warmly received Sorry I Messed Up, which came out earlier this year.
Who Do They Sound Like?
Lush chords, gentle melodies and a ethereal sense of wonder, imagine early Fleetwood Mac thrown together with the Cocteau Twins and vintage Cardigans.
Why Should I Be Excited?
Blissed out grooves and gorgeous melodies, it's a lovely combination.
Can I Hear Something?
You can hear 'Wake Up', the lead-off single from Sorry I Messed Up, below. The EP is available to download here.
