More New Tunes from Holopaw

Those of you looking for a sprawling bit of carefully orchestrated pop are going to fawn over Academy Songs, Volume 1, the newest record from Florida’s Holopaw.  On their latest single, the vocals are what seem to draw me in, going back and forth between a careful whisper and a rising bit of force.  This is one of the more gentle tunes on the record, which will see a release from Misra on January 15th.  The band carefully builds the sound, with lightly rolling drums filling in the negative space with perfect precision.  It’s slow opening only makes the emphatic release of tension more special as the song continues to unfold.  This release can’t come soon enough.
