((Holy Other)) Band Profile and Upcoming New York City Concerts - Oh My Rockness

Oh no, another? Holy Other is an enigmatic Berlin based (or maybe he's in Manchester now, conflicting reports) producer guy (I don't know his name; it may go down as one of the biggest mysteries of all time - but then again, I only Google searched about two minutes for it) that is doing his part (along with James Blake + The Weeknd + How to Dress Well + Beacon + Active Child + ah, whatever) to keep this down tempo R & B dub-step electronic thing alive and at the very front of the buzz bin.

Like all those other guys, Holy Other also makes slow atmospheric soul jams that like to go all heavy on the bass. These songs don't really "rock out" though. If that's what you want, you're not going to get it here. Nope. Holy Other's songs don't pick up steam so much as slowly let the air out.

In other words, Holy Other's electronica isn't the stuff that will "get this party started." No, this is more like carefully constructed, steady songs by a nameless guy that will keep "this party from turning into a sloppy train wreck." Helpful tip: you might also find that Holy Other's songs are good for doing "the nasty" to. And "the nasty" is always a fun thing to do.
