On Repeat: Holloys – Lake Land

mp3: Holloys – Lake Land

Holloys is the vehicle for the music of Los Angeles based visual artist and songwriter Jim Brown. Word has it the band used to go for a more ambient noise sound but thankfully on their ‘Art Wars’ EP they’ve progressed to an altogether more danceable and on occasions poppy sound. But make no mistake this is music with substance, full of a variety of cultural influences and sounds from prog to dance to trance to afro-pop. The track I’ve picked is EP opener ‘Lake Land’ with it’s glorious almost bhangra style guitar lick and it’s call to arms lyrics of ‘I send the holloys’. It’s not the most obvious track off the EP, it is ‘Heart Mission’ which will grab the headlines but ‘Lake Land’ may have more longevity. Buy this EP from your new favourite band!
