New Signing: Holy Strays24/06/2014
We are thrilled to announce the signing Holy Strays through our Something In Construction imprint. Holy Strays is the nom de plume of 24 year-old Paris-based musician and producer, Sebastian Forrester whose complex and percussive, bass-heavy dusky tracks are unerringly human and emotive. He’s released singles with Not Not Fun (Peaking Lights, Maria Minerva, Sun Araw), Morning Ritual, Atelier Ciseaux (Mount Eerie, Dirty Beaches, Prince Rama) and his debut EP Chasm with Demand Vinyl/Something In Construction (Memory Tapes, Air France, Concretes). The above track is taken from his Pathless March X Seance 7″ that came out on Atelier Ciseaux last month.
