Holy Holy strike back with new single Darwinism and hint at a new album

Some of their most abrasive and interesting work to date.

The most striking thing about Darwinism is its rough around the edges kind of feel, it isn't the clean-cut sound we know from Holy Holy's debut album When The Storms Would Come and I like it. Where there was curves and gliding guitar licks on When The Storms Would Come, Darwinism almost slips into a wall of noise approach. And it's refreshing, as we recently wrote about in an article titled The (Over-Polished) Sound of Music music has started to sound a little too perfect, a little too smoothed out. Not that music itself can't be great but sometimes it's all a bit too polished and it's sounds like someone has barely even put their hands all over it. Darwinism doesn't sound like that, sure I'm not picking out actual mistakes in this track, but the clanging guitar riffs and pounding drums in the breakdown make this track stand out. It sounds like someone actually slaved over this to create something worthwhile to listen too. Word is they're also planning tour Australia soon so get keen.
