Holodrum

Formed in Leeds but crackling with a Trans-Atlantic energy, Holodrum are a seven-piece coming together of collaborators old and new to create something that uproots the punk and repeato-rock foundations that many of its members had explored in previous projects and relocates them amidst a shared love of the early DFA Records movement, and further back to the likes of Liquid Liquid, Konk, Talking Heads and Tom Tom Club.

Emily Garner (vocals), Matthew Benn (synth/bass/programming), Jonathan Nash (drums), Jonathan Wilkinson (guitar), Sam Shjipstone (guitar/vocals), Christopher Duffin (sax/synth) and Steve Nuttall (percussion) came together from various other projects, either defunct or on a break, and as a result there was a real focus on creating something that collectively felt fresh on a creative level. Demos have been pieced together as the band moved around various rehearsal spaces in Leeds, tracks forming out of live ideas furthered and extended.
