The Holidays release new album “Real Feel” | touring in March

The HolidaysThe Holidays new album Real Feel celebrates its release today.

The follow up to Post Paradise and next week’s triple J feature album, Real Feel was painstakingly yet lovingly written over two years across numerous cities and continents, then recorded locally in Melbourne and Sydney. A travelogue of sorts, it echoes singer Simon Jones’ songwriting sojourns through major cities like Berlin, London, Paris and Tokyo.

“This was a difficult record to make, always searching for a sound just beyond our grasp, narrowing in and trying to capture some essence. I had an idea for a sound that I couldn’t quite name or explain, a vague feeling, somewhere between love and loneliness, like a daydream where you can’t quite remember the content but the feelings you had remain. I guess that’s what this album is, trying to make real the intangible feelings of a few years of living.” – Simon Jones, The Holidays

Fans would already be familiar with new tracks ‘Voices Drifting’, ‘All Time High’ and ‘Home’, which have helped the band firmly put themselves back on the radar via radio play and blog love, after their international adventures.

In less than two weeks, the band will take to the road for a national tour that will see them travel to regional as well as metro locations. Supporting The Holidays on the tour will be Brisbane indie-pop stars, The Cairos. Tickets are available for all shows now.

Real Feel is out today.

The Holidays – Debut Album Release & National Headline Tour – October 2010

Sydney foursome The Holidays’ debut album, Post Paradise, may have been a long time coming, but it has absolutely been worth the wait.


Post
Post Paradise (Bonus Track Version) – The Holidays
  The band commenced writing the album early last year and a metamorphosis of sorts gradually began to take place. They’ve left behind the simplicity of their earlier indie guitar sound and took aboard new influences where both the groove and layers were equally as rewarding as the glistening pop hooks. A steady guiding hand also came from one of the country’s premier mixers, Tony Espie (Avalanches, Midnight Juggernauts, Cut Copy).

On first listen brand new single Broken Bones is as unassuming as a late summer stroll but then consistently uncovers more and more layers to reveal a luscious, tropical experience.

Hungry Kids of Hungary, The Holidays, The Artisan Guns @ The Zoo, Brisbane – 6 August 2010 – Live Review

Review: Victoria Nugent

  Friday night at the Zoo, the crowd is still pretty thin as New Zealand four-piece The Artisan Guns take to the stage. Between bantering about having been awake for nearly a whole day, thanks to flights and time differences, the band shows off their ability for mellow melodies and beautiful harmonies. Soft vocals are teamed with perfectly timed guitars, with sudden dynamic upsurges scattered throughout the set. The group present a beautifully melancholy cover of the Michelle Branch

hit, Everywhere to Me, as well as showcasing their own skilful song writing capabilities.
