It seems like there’s a growing trend in music, that being the less you know about the artist the better their music is. So is the case with R/B sensation the Weeknd and lesser known New York act MS MR. Moreover, for the past year Manchester’s Holy Other has taken the WWW by storm with his spooky, almost goth-like productions. His 2011 EP With U was described by Ventvox as “one of the best things to come out of the downtempo field in years.”
The fact-shy artist released his debut LP late last month and it’s left his growing fanbase wanting more. Much like With U, Held is meant for the confines of your bedroom, where you can reflect upon your hate for douche bags, carbs, and broken hearts. With that being said, you don’t have to be obnoxiously emo to enjoy Holy Other’s music.
On October 6, Holy Other will be bringing his infamous stage antics to Vancouver, as he’ll be hitting up Fortune Sound Club for an early show with Winnie favs Cyril Hahn and Evy Jane. And yes, there will be smoke machines. Advanced tickets are $12.00 and you can purchase them online or at Highlife, Dipt, Red Cat and Beatstreet.
