Arizona band Holy Fawn describe their sound as ‘Loud. Heavy. Pretty. Noises.’ And that’s a fairly accurate way to summarise their intricate, genre-busting sound. Check out the video for Drag Me Into The Woods to find out more.
An amalgam of dark but soothing sounds, Drag Me Into The Woods feels like it comes from the Carpathian forest or the upper reaches of Scandinavia’s primal north, not an American desert state.
Dense but delicate, this blackened then bleached take on shoegaze and post rock sounds is the perfect ear candy for those that are happy to feel alone in a crowded room, as its layers of shimmering and reverbed guitars wash over the listener with a sense of uneasy, otherworldly joy.
