Paul Mercer was recently in the studio with Frederick natives Holy MTN producing their first official release.
It’s clear these guys have a serious nod to give to the 80s. A dancy Joy Division comes to mind, but there’s also a strong pull from 90s indie rock bands, a la DC’s The Dismemberment Plan and The Afghan Whigs. That said, these guys have a distinct groove yet jazzy sound with still being able to hang on to a guitar with out sounding like a cliché rock-band. I can’t wait to here what they do next!
Here is our favorite song from the record that’s currently on bandcamp. Seriously, we can’t stop listening!
