Bands to look out for #3

Holy Other
Holy Other come from the very eminent side of new music these days. Bedroom situated computer geniuses are overpopulating the blogosphere with their dreamy, flowing, atmospheric electronic snippets which are forgotten within a matter of days. The synths form a wave pattern, you can almost imagine the waves lapping over each other as each loop repeats itself. The sampled voices echo and form a choir like mentality, more spaced out than those by other artists such as Purity Ring. Holy Other are dripping in atmosphere, dragging you towards a sea of calming synths and crashing beats which fill your mind. On 'Touch', influences from Mount Kimbie and James Blake are prominent with computer altered vocals and it sounds more post dubstep than other songs. Holy Other are in the ranks with other similar artists such as oOoOO and Balam Acab who pursue a similar sound. Most likely to be seen supporting your favourite witch house/post dubstep artist on tour soon.
Debut EP With U out on 6th June from Triangle Records
