They might sound like a religious group, but Holy Family are actually an uber-cool quartet from Gothenburg. The currently Montreal-based band’s new song ‘There Completely’ is about trying to be fully present in the moment and is a song filled with infectious exhilaration.
You hear the catchy, latin-like percussion fading in and you’re hooked. Then the soundscape drastically expands by adding dark, dramatic piano bass lines, heartfelt vocals and atmospheric, gliding guitar comets, fearlessly mix all sorts of contrasts. Their unique creativity really shines through and the result is a quirky, but brilliant tune that makes it impossible to sit still.
Holy Family released their debut album Can’t Dance, Won’t Steal, Need Some Help back in 2014 and though they’ve been a bit quiet in recent years, there’s good news! ’There Completely’ is the first taste of their forthcoming album Values. The album will be out on August 25th via Melodic Records. It will surely be a record to look out for, so get excited by listening to ‘There Completely’ below:
