HARDCORE Holy F*ck

I often get the feeling that we should be paying much more attention to Holy F*ck. Their approach to making music seems frankly deranged. They slip neatly into no single genre. And their albums give up their secrets with Mafia levels of reluctance. If you haven’t got your head around Congrats, give it another listen, and live they have a solid reputation of putting the music first, and the usual show trappings – lights, showmanship, conversation – a distant second. But with music as intriguing as this, that’s as it should be.
