Band: Hollyy (Chicago)
Who: “Influenced by the stirring vocals of Sam Cooke and Leon Bridges, as well as the indie
rock stylings of Wilco and Whitney, Hollyy has erupted onto the scene with a sound as vibrant and welcoming as the members that comprise it. And those band members are poised and ready now to drop their much anticipated first full-length project since they teamed up
together in 2018.”
Track: Wondering Why – from upcoming EP ‘Miss The feeling’, out 25th September.
Score: The legendary Motown Sound is back. These Chicago musicians look like rockers
but sound like a soul orchestra featuring steaming horns, frisky guitars, warm organs, funky Temptations rhythms and a frontman whose black roots voice brings giants like Marvin Gaye, Sam Cooke and Smoky Robinson but also Simply Red‘s Mick Hucknall and
Steve Winwood to mind. I’m pretty sure these guys’ papas were rollin’ stones.
Start some sexual healing and go and dance in the streets.
Right here, right now…
