Fresh from the announcement of their forthcoming fourth album, Hello My Beautiful World (out Friday 20 August via Wonderlick Recording Company), Holy Holy have announced a national tour, stopping by Forum Melbourne.
Recorded in a series of modest studios and spare rooms in Tasmania and Victoria, Holy Holy’s fourth album, Hello My Beautiful World is perhaps their most fully realised. Built upon a foundation of electronic beats and rolling synths, the record combines lush string arrangements, May-esque guitar riffs and chanted vocals to produce a heady and persuasive mix. The record moves fluidly through a collection of feverish moods and atmospheres, unfolding unpredictably and building to a series of fierce and manic highs. It’s a dense and ambitious record suited to close and repeated listening.
Like many records you will hear throughout 2021, Hello My Beautiful World was largely forged in the midst of Australia's lockdown period. The pair didn't tackle the album entirely on their own - Japanese Wallpaper added distinctive texture and flair across the album, CLEWS, meanwhile, have their voices featured on the incessant, electric cut The Aftergone, and of course there is the hyperactive, fiery guest verses of Melbourne rapper Queen P on Port Rd. Throw in the flourishes of composer Toby Alexander's string arrangements, plus collaborations with The Presets Kim Moyes, and you're looking at a record that sees the band redefining itself as a powerful force in the Australian songwriting landscape.
