Ones to Watch: Holy Fuck
Introducing the top bands making a splash at the festivals
Friday 04 July 2008
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.
Lounge On The Farm, 11 July; T in the Park, 13 July; Loop, 15 August
