Share new single, “Valley“
Debut album Slow Sundown
Due 9th March on Wharf Cat Records
“they prove they’re firmly in the driving seat when it comes to smoky psychedelia.” – DIY
“as dreamy and unnerving as a whole generation of rock bands who traded in slow-moving melancholy, like Low, Mazzy Star, or the post-Slowdive ensemble Mojave 3.” –Noisey
Slow Sundown, Holy Motors’ debut full length release, finds the Estonian dreamcatchers utilizing a consistent sonic palette ranging from dark psychedelic pop to shoegaze-inflected western music. But while Sleeprydr, much like 2015’s Heavenly Creatures 7”, provided only a fleeting glimpse into the dreamscape that their music evokes, Slow Sundown’s eight tracks offer a more immersive experience for those brave enough to take the ride.
While the guitar lines from lonely cowboy ballads like “Honeymooning” could easily serve as the central themes for unwritten Morriccone scores, or a Mazzy Star b-side, dystopian anthems like the the rhythmically propelled “Signs” break new ground for the band and demonstrate that Holy Motors are not bound by their influences.
Today, the band share “Valley“, which DIY calls, “a dusty, atmospheric cut that conjures images of small frontier towns, evoking images of loneliness.”
Produced by Merchandise’s Carson Cox and recorded at Brooklyn’s Kutch1 Studios when the band was visiting the U.S., Slow Sundown is a beautiful alien artifact and hopefully the first of many.
