Welcome to ‘Wishlist’. First new single taken from Holy Now’s upcoming EP ‘Please Call Me Back’ out in February 2017 on Lazy Octopus Records.
Gothenburg based Holy Now debuted to wide spread acclaim with their debut EP Sorry I Messed Up in May 2016. Earning praise from The 405, DIY Mag and others alongside nominations for “Breakthrough Of The Year” and “Pop Of The Year” at Swedish magazine GAFFA’s annual GAFFA AWARD. The band creates jangly and beautiful pop in the veins of Alvvays, HINDS and Angel Olsen.
In more strained modern day reality, ‘Wishlist’ is a vocally perky, guitar heavy slice of positivity, in an increasing world of cut and paste computer beats, to hear a band with real energy is the first positive, the fact that the indie-pop band deliver, not as easy as it sounds. The single should spark a good few to have some much needed optimism, at least sonically, for 2017. 7.7/10
