The Holidays brand new video!

THE HOLIDAYS: Golden Sky 7″ (The Passport Label – 30 August 2010)

The Passport Label is thrilled to be teaming up with Sydney band, The Holidays, for its latest 7″ release in August.

Having emerged from their Sydney studio just in time for the British summer, The Holidays present Golden Sky – a sun-drenched tune that channels warm nights and cloudless skies. The song blends wild percussion, sing-a-long chant choruses, falsetto vocals and squawking guitars into an action-packed, yet equally sublime journey.
B-side “Heavy Feathers” complements the lead track perfectly. A little more downbeat than the elation of “Golden Sky”, “Heavy Feathers” is a dreamy, hazy come-down evoking the relaxed atmosphere of The Caribbean.

The Golden Sky single consolidates The Holidays’ foray into an exciting new direction that genuinely stakes their claim as one of the most exciting new bands in the Australia. Remixes of their track “Moonlight Hours” by Modular new kids on the block Jonathon Boulet and The Swiss have also attracted generous lashings of hyperbole in the blogoshere. The latter recently appeared on an exclusive NME download Mixtape complied by UK disco/electro wunder-kid Grum, and made much-loved Belgian remixers Aeroplane’s February Chart podcast.

Golden Sky will sit comfortably on The Holidays’ forthcoming debut album, which is nearing completion and has been self-produced by the band and mixed by Tony Espie (Midnight Juggernauts, Cut Copy, Avalanches). The album is shaping up to be a thrilling musical ride traversing a myriad of influences and genres that ultimately will see light of day as a groove-based record full of summer vibes, elec-tropical dance floor anthems and mellow, breezy melodies.
