Published Mar 29, 2016Fans of Toronto's Holy Fuck are getting ready to flood their ears with the band's forthcoming, long-awaited new LP, Congrats. Before the album arrives May 27 through Last Gang Records/Innovative Leisure, you can sample the senses-blurring whirr of "Xed Eyes."
The album preview follows the band's "Tom Tom" track, with this latest tease presenting a distorted but danceable boom of digital beats, scotching synth sounds, and dizzying, echo-blown vocal melodies. The guitar string-scraping, speaker-panning philosophy behind the presentation is disorienting but damned infectious.
