Dance To The Radio & Holy State E.P‏

H O L Y S T A T E – H O L Y S T A T E Dance To The Radio & Holy State E.P‏E.P.


Holy State have teamed up with Leeds Independent Label Dance To The Radio for the release of their first EP proper ‘Holy State.’

Musically enlightened beyond their years, the band take influence from post-hardcore legends Girls Against Boys, alt-rock gods Jesus Lizard, and indie institution The Fall at their darkest and most rhythmically driven, combined with a hint of Spector’s ‘Wall of Sound’ and a nod to Man or Astroman?’s sci-fi surf oddness. This EP is the sound of a band truly honing in on something special and individual.

Holy State have previously released split singles, through the magnificent Holy Roar label, with the like of Pulled Apart by Horses and Brontide, and were featured on Huw Stephen’s ‘Music Sounds Better With Huw –Volume 1’, through Witchita, with a selection of the Radio 1 tastemaker’s other ‘top tips’ .

DTTR first worked with Holy State last year releasing the brutal Jagged Lines on the 2nd of the 4×12” vinyl compilations. The band also opened up the now legendary DTTR Stage (and therefore the whole weekend’s festivities) at Leeds Festival to 7000 hungry music fans, alongside Blood Red Shoes, Wild Beasts, Bear Hands and Airship.

Recorded at Leeders Farm in Norfolk by Lawrence Eaves (Lovvers), Holy State EP is released on a glorious digipack CD package with a hand printed tote bag and T-shirt through Dance To The Radio on July 12th 2010.
