Holy State EP

Holy State

After some very brief recorded appearances over various splits and compilations, Holy State have seen fit to let more Swami influenced goodness available.

Despite being a mere four tracks, they do a pretty sweet job of showcasing the bands vision and obvious love for 90’s alternative rock.

There are obvious nods to The Jesus Lizard, Drive Like Jehu and Hoover but these are actually used as influences rather than ideas to rip off. Drawing on these the band has found themselves in the position of having a sound that stands out quite a bit. All four tracks are superbly written but it’s the final track “Palms” that perfectly captures their sound. Bringing to mind Hoover gate crashing a Hot Snakes practise. It’s that good.
