Published Mar 31, 2016Calgary psych pop outfit Holgans have come to an end, of sorts, moving on from the previous iteration of the project that was a collaboration between visual artist/musician Kiarra Albina and multi-instrumentalist Ryan Bourne. Before the project evolves into something new, the original Holgans will issue a new tape fittingly titled Holgans Are Dead.
The six-song release collects music that was conceived and recorded from 2013 to 2015. As a press write-up explains, the EP "hits the psychedelic sweet spot: swirling pop rocks in the nature-drone served lush and spellbound, oozing with serene depth and texture."
Holgans Are Dead will arrive on April 7 via the Calgary label Shaking Box Music. Until then, Exclaim! is happy to premiere the full EP. You can stream it below.
Further, Calgarians can catch Holgans tonight (March 31) at Broken City, where they'll perform alongside Astral Swans and Kylie B Ward.
