Summer’s throes may have vanished but Sydney quartet The Holidays emerge from their Sydney studio with another sun-drenched tune that channels warm nights and cloudless skies.
The new single "Golden Sky" blends wild percussion, sing-a-long chant choruses, falsetto vocals and squawking guitars into an action packed, yet equally sublime journey.
"Golden Sky" comes hot on the heels of the acclaimed single "Moonlight Hours" which saw the band's musical GPS re-configured, consolidating the band’s foray into an exciting new direction that genuinely stakes their claim as one of the most exciting new bands in the country.
"Golden Sky" will sit comfortably alongside its predecessor on The Holiday’s long-awaited, forthcoming debut album, which is nearing completion and has been self produced by the band and mixed by Tony Espie (Midnight Juggernauts, Cut Copy, Avalanches).
The album is shaping up to be a thrilling musical ride traversing a myriad of influences and genres that ultimately will see light of day as a groove-based record full of summer vibes, elec-tropical dance floor anthems and mellow, breezy melodies.
