On the latest single from their album Civilian, Wye Oak have created a dark and atmospheric rock tune that positively brims with suppressed melancholy… until it bursts out into a suprisingly more cheerful chorus. But don’t let that fool you: ‘Holy Holy’ uses a defiantly condensed take on the loud-quiet-loud format in its powerful guitar riff and short-lived plucking coupled with vocals that are both sturdy and wistful to create something magical. Admittedly, it isn’t a song that instantly grabs you but after a few plays it’s fair to say that this is a real grower. Come the dark winter nights you might be glad to have this song soundtracking the days.
