Holy Holy’s home turf tour is hot off the heels of the band’s 2nd European tour where they recently released their critically acclaimed debut album, When The Storms Would Come.
After attending their sold out London show, The Huffington Post said Holy Holy are ‘re-awakening their genre in an accurate and sonically spectacular fashion… Holy Holy are modern, indie DIY travellers who carry dream pop loveliness off with the big riffs and solos of a now almost forgotten time with mesmerising aplomb.’
With an already epic year under their belts, Holy Holy have notched up another few highlights: Oscar Dawson and Timothy Carroll were announced as the first 2 people from 1 band to make the longlist for the APRA PDA Songwriting Awards; and Tim winning that coveted award; their most recent single, A Heroine, once again being added to rotation at Triple J; the album being announced on the longlist for The AMP (Australian Music Prize); the mighty Lauren Laverne from BBC 6Radio in the UK coming on board as their newest fan and playing History several times; hitting #12 on the Spotify Viral chart in The Netherlands; and Ryan Strathie being nominated for the AU Review Award’s Best Drummer in Australia.
Add in the band’s recent extensive, sold-out national album tour of Aus, their killer set at Splendour In The Grass, and their 2 European/UK tours and it’s been a year well worth writing home about.
Joining Holy Holy on the A Heroine tour will be Australian synth-pop starlet, Olympia, and Canadian alternative folk-pop band, The Franklin Electric.
It has been a busy year for Olympia with 3 beautiful singles, support slots with Alpine, Lamb and Paul Dempsey, as well as glowing media praise and anticipation growing ahead of her album release next year.
The Franklin Electric
The Franklin Electric have had huge success in their homeland of Canada over the last 18 months, selling out their own headline shows and supporting City & Colour and Half Moon Runs on international tours.
