Holy Holy live ever since their mini-tour for The Pacific EP was announced. Mary and I made it into the Shebeen Bandroom last night just as the weather turned to rain outside. The first act for the evening was singer-songwriter Oscar Lush, who played an indie/folk set both with a band and solo that sounded really great. Oscar has a lovely voice and some excellent songs- a definite talent. The same could not be said for the next band on the bill, Hollow Everdaze. I really didn't care for the lead singer's voice and the best song in their thankfully short set was the one sung by their keyboardist.
Holy Holy came out onto the stage to an appreciative sold out crowd. It was good to see Ryan Strathie (ex-Hungry Kids Of Hungary) playing drums again. Their set sounded fantastic and featured old and new material, with the singles "House Of Cards" and "Impossible Like You" being the standout tracks. To complement the 70s rock vibe of their music they also did a cover of Neil Young's "Southern Man." Overall it was a great set and I'm really looking forward to seeing them play live again when they open for Boy & Bear in September.
Here's the video for "House Of Cards"
