“Mesmerizing, dark melodies” - Subbacultcha

“Alluring in their delivery, entrapping in their substance” - Adhoc

Holy Motors sound like the bastard love child of Hope Sandoval and Ennio Morricone born in the back of a ‘67 Trans Am and raised on nothing but Slowdive and My Bloody Valentine. Their sound lies somewhere between the wind with a vibrato and the soundtrack to a non-existent movie.

The band’s second single, an introduction to their forthcoming debut album, is yet another love story inspired by Chris Isaak songs and Spanish blues. The single features the sad and sultry two-chord ‘Sleeprydr’ backed with ‘Descending’, a sunset anthem for lonely navigators.

In their time, Holy Motors have played alongside Craft Spells, Sic Alps, and Dirty Fences and lent their music to the likes of Jim Jarmusch, in his film ‘Night Train’.
