Holy Drone are architects of shoegaze dream-pop, heavenly fuzz riffs and luscious, mesmerising vocals. After making their debut in 2016, the Warrington quintet’s noise laden psych sound has piqued people’s interest across the world, and now they’re back with a brand new offering.
‘Northern Fire’ is the latest release from Holy Drone. Inspired by the struggles of monotony, the lyrics focus on the cycle of menial boredom, craving a change but being too scared to do anything about it, and self-medicating in a poor attempt to make life more entertaining. The dreamy track draws inspiration from the sounds of Psychic Ills and Slowdive, while firmly carving their own unique sound throughout. ‘Northern Fire’ follows their previous releases ‘Sleeping Silver’, ‘Radio Song’ and ‘Washed Out’, and two EPs - ‘Danxia’ (2016) and 2017’s follow up ‘Learn To Swim’, which all captured the attention of the likes of BBC Introducing, The Unsigned Guide and MCR Live.
