Canterbury indie pop duo, Holy Pinto are previewing their upcoming debut album with a video for ‘Matches’ – check it out below, first on Upset. The footage features clips from in the studio.
Full-length ‘Congratulations’ was produced by Bob Cooper (Nai Harvest, Citizen), and is due for release via Soft Speak Records on 8th April.
‘Matches’ is the opening track of our album,” says guitarist/vocalist Aymen Saleh. “A short, bittersweet song that sets the tone for the record. It starts tame and sparse instrumentally with soft, affectionate moments – before later adding more instruments and a bit of bark.
“We got creative with it – there’s keyboard, organ, trumpet and even a vocal take that is just Ryan screaming. This ‘making-of’ video chronicles the time Bob Cooper locked us in an underground studio and cracked the whip – demanding musical perfection.”
