Holy Moly & The Crackers Christmas Single
2017 has been a big year for the Holy Moly & The Crackers: on the back of fruitful festival season in 2016 (performing at over 30 festivals, including major stage shows at Glastonbury, Wilderness, Kendal Calling, Wickham and Towersey where they were described as “festival band of the year“) the ever-evolving gypsy-folk-rock band released their new album ‘Salem’ in July 2017 on their own label, Pink Lane Records (in association with Kartel Music Group and Wipe Out Publishing). The album has received acclaimed reviews from Clash Magazine, R2 Magazine, Folk Radio UK, God Is In The TV Zine, The Crack, No Depression (U.S.) and Blown Speaker (U.S.) to name but a few.
Over the course of the album campaign Holy Moly And The Crackers have toured the UK twice, selling out venues across the country, and made successful debuts in The Netherlands, France, Germany and Italy as well as continuing their success on the festival circuit with performances at Boomtown Fair, Bestival and Camp Bestival, amongst others.
The lead single from ‘Salem‘ was the barnstorming indie-rock anthem ‘Cold Comfort Lane’, was included on major Spotify playlists: New Noise and #WCE-Woman Crush Everyday – with over 100k+streams on the platform. The band also had significant sync success, with ‘Cold Comfort Lane‘ used by E4, BT Vision, Capital One and Ultimate Ears.
To finish the year in style Holy Moly & The Crackers will release their first ever Christmas single, ‘Punk Drunk Xmas Eve’ on 17th November. Having returned to Vada Studios with ‘Salem‘ producer Matt Terry to record it, they hark back to their folk/roots and have created a song that is dark, funny and full of Tim Burton-esque vibe and imagery.
