The Pacific EP was without doubt a resounding success for Australian band Holy Holy. A 5-track, spawning a wonderful collection of melodic indie classics that were universally praised by the media and music fans alike, the band now return with news of a new LP and more importantly grace today’s GIGsoup Track of the Day spot.
‘Sentimental And Monday’, from the bands forthcoming album ‘When The Storms Would Come’, is possibly Holy Holy’s most memorable track to date. It’s foundation of melodic guitars and delicate vocals give the listener a true insight into the quite obvious songwriting ability of the band.

Songwriter Timothy Carroll says of ‘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…”
The album ‘When The Storms Would Come’ was largely recorded on 2-inch tape and produced by Matt Redlich in Brisbane, Australia. It will be released in the UK on 30th October 2015.
