Australian compelling duo Holy Holy – songwriter Timothy Carroll and composer and guitarist Oscar Dawson + drummer Ryan Strathie, touring bassist Graham Ritchie, and their producer and keys player Matt Redlich – reveal ‘Sentimental and Monday’, a brand new intense & far-reaching piece of music, lifted from their debut album ‘When The Storms Would Come’, released in the UK on 30th October.
The video for the track, it was filmed from the window of a passenger jet by Josh Dawson, guitarist Oscar Dawson’s brother, who created an ethereal and fascinating cinematic experience.
Timothy Carroll explains: “‘Sentimental and Monday’ has a bit of different feel to some of other songs – “it uses a hip hop beat and a boy choir at the end to build up to the outro which I love. We also used sped up piano in the middle so there’s a few little tricks in the mix on this one. This song is about two things. First was the coming of the winter in Sweden and the way the city feels as the long dark season approaches and the second was about leaving Stockholm with my girlfriend after we had lived there for a year. It’s about leaving loved ones behind that sentimental feeling you get saying goodbye…”
