The Holidays – East Coast Headliner Tour May-June 2010

The Holidays   Sydney quartet The Holidays announce East Coast headline dates to coincide with the release of their imminent new single Golden Sky. Summer’s throes may have vanished but the band has emerged from their Sydney studio with another sun-drenched tune that channels warm nights and cloudless skies. Golden Sky, delivered to radio shortly, blends wild percussion, sing-a-long chant choruses, falsetto vocals and squawking guitars into an action packed, yet equally sublime journey.

It comes hot on the heels of the acclaimed single Moonlight Hours, which reached # 1 on Triple J’s playlist earlier this year and re-configured the band’s musical GPS.

It consolidates the band’s foray into an exciting new direction that genuinely stakes their claim as one of the most exciting new bands in the country. Moonlight Hours’ remixes by Modular new kids on the block Jonathon Boulet and The Swiss have also attracted generous lashings of hyperbole in the blogosphere. The latter recently appeared on an exclusive NME download Mixtape complied by UK disco/electro wunder-kid Grum, and made much-loved Belgian re-mixers’ Aeroplane’s February Chart podcast. Golden Sky will sit comfortably alongside its predecessor on The Holiday’s long-awaited, forthcoming debut album, which is nearing completion and has been self produced by the band and mixed by Tony Espie (Midnight Juggernauts, Cut Copy, Avalanches).

The album is shaping up to be a thrilling musical ride traversing a myriad of influences and genres that ultimately will see light of day as a groove-based record full of summer vibes, elec-tropical dance floor anthems and mellow, breezy melodies.

More recently, the band has premiered the addition of a live percussionist on their current national tour with Bluejuice to great responses. These shows will give fans a chance to check out the captivating new Holidays live experience and sample of the bulk of their exciting debut album. Support comes from hotly tipped Sydney troubadour Ernest Ellis
