Ahead of the release of their third studio album, My Own Pool of Light (out Friday August 2nd via Wonderlick Recordings), HOLY HOLY today announce a 15-date national headline tour. Renowned for their extraordinary live performances, this September, October and November will see HOLY HOLY playing some of their biggest venues to date, visiting both capital cities and regional centres.
My Own Pool of Light is an undiluted representation of HOLY HOLY’S vision, from the songwriting to the recording process and, ultimately, their decision to self produce. It’s an album that finds guitarist Oscar Dawson and vocalist Timothy Carroll incorporating new sounds and fresh ideas. In the process they redefine exactly what kind of band they are without sacrificing the key elements – soaring melodies, lush instrumental textures, the beguiling mix of jubilance and melancholy, Carroll’s affecting lyrics – that have made them one of Australia’s most popular acts.
To date the duo have over 46 million streams to their name, while their 2015 debut, When The Storms Would Come, debuted at Number 11 on the ARIA Charts. Its follow-up, 2017’s Paint, was a Top 10 hit, with True Lovers landing at #40 in 2017’s Hottest 100. This success propelled HOLY HOLY to festival appearances both local (Groovin The Moo 2019, Bluesfest 2018, Secret Garden 2018, Festival Of The Sun 2018 among many others) and international (Primavera, The Great Escape, Reeperbahn, Dot To Dot), as well as countless sold out headline shows around Australia. First single off the upcoming record, Faces, has been streamed almost 2 million times, claimed the #1 most played position on triple j, received support from the UK’s BBC Radio 1 and was playlisted on Radio X in the UK.
