My Favourite Things: Holy Holy
The Brisbane rockers take a few happy snaps of their favourite things for us.
Brisbane psych-folk outfit Holy Holy are on a roll. Following the release of a beautiful new video clip for the single History, and they've just popped up on Triple J Mornings for Like A Version, smashing out a glorious version of Joy Division's Love Will Tear Us Apart. We asked them to get snapping on their iPhone and give us a bit of insight into a few of their favourite things whilst they're also in the midst of a national tour. Check those things below, along with their remaining tour dates...
DZ Z GUITAR AMP
This isn't actually mine. I wish it was. It belongs to our producer, Matt Redlich. He let me use it on the QLD leg of our History tour. It is, without a doubt, the finest guitar amplifier I have ever used. We could only actually turn it up to 0.3 on the stage and that was enough, and still it sounded beautiful. I want one.
This is a shaker that I devised myself. It handily doubles as a rice container, and might come in handy should there been any drastic food shortages. Even better, the container is a used mayonnaise jar. Mayonnaise is also one of my favourite things, and I can use this shaker and be reminded of my passion for that joyous, oily, white substance at the same time.
MY FUNNY LITTLE BOOK
Everyone needs a funny little book. When I finish this one, I will find a new one, and it will become one of my favourite things. If anyone steals this off me, my life and all that is important to me will collapse in a heap.
You can be guaranteed that something good will happen every time you turn it on.
Delightful packets of gluten and butter. Probably the single most important invention in human history, aside from (perhaps) the wheel.
