Holy Moly! Rescue Rooms welcomes Holy Moly & The Crackers

Alt-rock/folk troupe Holy Moly & The Crackers are bringing their riotous party music to the masses and will be stopping off in Nottingham.

Their recently released third album, ‘Take A Bite’ (released April 5 th 2019 on the band’s own Pink Lane Records), captured the band’s concise, passionate take on folk, blues and indie rock, rammed with melody, energy and positivity.

‘Take A Bite’ saw the band further adorning their naturally expressive take on British folk with sizeable dollops of rock'n'soul, sharp indie-rock, vulnerable balladeering and festival-ready psychedelic trips towards the Middle East, 'Take A Bite' sets its stall confidently in the previously unoccupied space between the Gossip, Arctic Monkeys, the B52s and Gogol Bordello.

It is the sound of a band who have been searching and experimenting for several years; arriving at a place where they can say “this who we are and this is where we want to go."

The band’s most recent single, the effervescent ‘Upside Down’, crystallises this approach to performance and songwriting over a thrilling 3 minutes. And now the band have captured all the elements they’re famed for – the performance, the passion, the sonic ingenuity and their classy feral energy – in a live-in-studio performance of ‘Upside Down’, shot at Newcastle’s Loft Studios, shot by Craig Newton (Counterfeit., Hello Operator).

The band will be visiting Rescue Rooms on October 19, tickets available here.
