Holy Esque have streamed their new track ‘Oslo’ today, released on a limited edition 7” via Beyond The Frequency alongside the Glasgow four-piece’s debut album At Hope’s Ravine, on February 26th.

“Oslo was written as part of a trilogy of songs,” reveals vocalist Pat Hynes. “A tragic tale that follows a prostitute, harassed and tortured until her final hour with everything left behind. It began in 2012 with ‘Ladybird Love’, followed by ‘Doll House’ from our forthcoming debut album, and finishes with ‘Oslo’. Emotional tracks that truly reach their pinnacle with this heavy and heartfelt song.”

Holy Esque enjoyed rising success throughout 2015, with their new single ‘Tear’ receiving incredible support from Annie Mac and Huw Stephens at BBC Radio 1. The band will be playing tracks from their debut album At Hope’s Ravine on their UK headline tour and instore dates listed below. Ticket for all shows are available now.
