Ones to Watch: Holy Fuck

Introducing the top bands making a splash at the festivals

As well as being less than radio friendly, Holy Fuck’s moniker carries connotations of snickering 13-year-olds.

The music from this Canadian act, however, is a good deal more sophisticated – essentially a kind of improvised electronica, but with pounding beats to stop the whole thing veering into chin-stroking territory.

Their live set is sure to be devastating, even if they have to play in a converted cowshed at the Lounge on the Farm festival.
