Introducing EMMA-nominated Finnish band, The Holy.

With a heavy focus on the live setting, their music is led by atmospheric piano chords and layered alt-rock, to create an equally inspiring set of tracks in their utopian themed album, ‘Mono Freedom’, released on 17 April via Playground Music.

Speaking further, frontman Eetu Henrik Iivari explains,

“The record and the lyrical themes are inspired by Alan Weisman’s book The World Without Us; a classic science book that explores a bunch of scenarios of what would happen to Mother Earth if humans were to disappear today.”

Melbourne musician Dan Flynn shares ‘Across The Wire’.

Much like all good folk songs, there is a soft melancholy throughout the song, and the addition of the lo-fi choir makes it an all atmospheric feat.

‘Across the Wire’ is the lead single taken from Dan Flynn’s upcoming solo album ‘Ghost Melodies’, out on 22 September.
