Rising contemporary electronica musician Holo will be releasing his new In Limbo EP via Houseum’s sub-label Ellipse Records on the 11th of March. The Australian producer burst onto the scene in 2019 after seeing his first track ‘Atlas’ uploaded on the Houseum YouTube channel and after releasing his debut EP of the same name, with house music heavyweight UK label Shall Not Fade’s sub-label Lost Palms. The EP featured the deep house classic ‘In My Dreams’ that earned over 2 million streams on Houseum channel.
Hugo Horwood (Holo himself) is originally from Canberra and is currently living in Melbourne, Australia. His music draws from unexpected genres, including pop, classic rock, acid and 90s hip hop, to create a sound that is truly his own.
‘Bleu’ is the first introduction into the kaleidoscopic EP that will subvert your expectations from the get-go. With a gradual start, the listener is rewarded for taking the extra time to lean back into the song and explore the multilayered tones of chilled vibes and an inescapable otherworldly realm. The first hint at the artist’s vocal talents, the single leaves the listener begging for more.
Speaking of the single, Holo tells us: “I chose this track’s title as a nod to Bicep’s “Glue” – an inspiration for the track’s sound – but also because in my mind this track’s colour was a light blue. Sometimes I get that when making music – a really strong mental image, whether it be a colour, or a scene. This is the first Holo track I’ve sung on too, with that Tame Impala-style vocal hook “Tomorrow” in the final minute. I love singing, and it’s something I explore a lot more on another record I’ll be releasing soon.”
