"This Will Be The Day That I Die" by The Holy
Life can't always be happy faces, sunny skies and driving with the top down. Someone needs to remind us of isolation and despair. But if it has to be done, it should be done well, with multiple layers of opacity, passages that invoke questions and require hard thinking, and perhaps some aspects that are frankly uncomfortable. Enter, stage left, Helsinki's The Holy. Newly signed to that city's Soliti Music, the band has released a song titled "This Will Be The Day That I Die", which does all that and more. You can experience the song below in video and streaming formats, but we advise you that the video is striking.
The Holy are Laura (bass/synth), Henrik (vocals/guitar/synth), Samppa (drums), Eero (drums), and Pyry (guitar).
