Holy Other (UK)
Niche Productions announces the exclusive Sydney side show for Manchester Producer Holy Other. Staying out of the spotlight won’t be easy for Holy Other. Not, at least, with his pristine, moody and magical electronic debut 'Held,' featuring single "Love Some1".
Performing in near darkness and preferring to keep his identity a secret is all part of Holy Other's mystery, which led him to hit the road recently with Beach House, Amon Tobin and Thom Yorke & Nigel Godrich's Atoms For Peace. It's time for this major talent to step out of the shadows.
Taking the alien kinetics of UK Garage, the euphoric highs of vocal house and the slow, sensuality of R&B, Holy Other has created a sound that's as melancholic as it is beautiful, spectral and yet slightly at unease with itself. The five songs that make up his debut EP 'With U' feel like a slow, solitary walk into the city night, lights flashing around you, muted when once they seemed to shine more brightly. In 2012 Holy Other released the debut album "Held" on tri angle, which has been heralded as a modern classic by every music journalist worth their salt.
Don't miss this exciting talent on his Sydney Laneway sideshow in the intimate surrounds of Goodgod Small Club.
