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.
