Single of the Day: Holy Holy “Darwinism” (2016)

Holy Holy this week slid back on to our radar (and no doubt, yours) with their new single, “Darwinism”. The first single from Oscar and Tim‘s highly anticipated sophomore album, this new piece of music is an exciting look ahead to this next chapter of the band’s creative output. With the original idea being further explored and fleshed out during some downtime on Holy Holy’s UK/European tour, “Darwinism” soon turned into a strong piece to be brought to their full band set up.

“I remember the boys were all asleep in the apartment,” Tim says. “I was looking for a place to play so I locked myself in the bathroom and was making some recordings on my phone. I felt straight away it could work as a full band track”.

And here we are now, on the cusp of Holy Holy’s next step forward. While “Darwinism” harks back to the awesome folk-rock style of music the debut album When The Storms Would Come showcased, the energy and texture within the music on this one demonstrates some kind of re-invigoration moving forward.

Either way, we’re keen to follow along.
