Daily electricity to load your batteries

29 March 2022

Who: The moniker for Isaac Holman’s solo trip. He’s the vocalist
and dynamite drummer of British garage rockers Slaves who
fabricated 3 high-powered albums (so far).

Holman just announced his debut solo album, titled
MONKEY BRAIN, out on 22 April. Pre-save here.

It’s “a collection of tunes written from shortly after a debilitating mental breakdown at
the start of 2019, up until now. Around half of the tunes on the record [were] co-produced by Damon Albarn who also plays various instruments throughout. I don’t know where this project would be if it wasn’t for him and I’m so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with him and observe his wizardry.”

We just got taster number two called 29 after last summer’s
first single Too Shy For Tennis, which was released last summer
with some assistance by Blur/Gorillaz mastermind Damon Albarn.

Baby Dave about 29: “There really isn’t much of a story behind this tune,
but that’s kind of the whole point. It’s about an uneventful bus journey from
Brighton to Tunbridge Wells with my mate Lucy. I had my laptop with me and
I decided to challenge myself to make a tune on the journey. This is that tune,
about that journey.”

29 is a viscous electro buzzer that sticks as first-class glue with Holman
chattering all over it. It’s pop-rap minimalism with a maximum fun effect,
it’s funky flair, it has a playful Gorrilaz vibe, and all this thanks to a boring
bus ride. In these troubled times, monkey business is always welcome.

C’mon, baby

While we’re here let’s keep on moving with the first single Too Shy For Tennis
