Holy Holy at the Forum, Saturday 2nd November 2019
The final show of the Holy Holy national tour was nothing short of sensational.
The boys, Timothy Carroll and Oscar Dawson together with their touring band Ryan Strathie, Graham Ritchie and Matt Redlich delivered an intimate and powerful show.
The tour was in celebration of their third album "In My Own Pool Of Light" which is packed full of hits including "Teach Me About Dying" and "Maybe you know".
The guys kept it super simple and delivered a set that was purely focused on their talents as musicians, allowing the music to be front and centre. No gimmicks, no tricks, just great tunes.
They played classics like "True Lovers", "That Message" and "Elevator" and also an unexpected cover of "Green Light" by LORDE, which absolutely brought the house down.
Holy Holy are enduring and evolving. They are humble and exciting and just so bloody good, live. They somehow made The Forum feel like an intimate pub show.
Tims guitar playing is world-class and Oscar's vocal cut through the night with ease.
What an amazing way to finish the tour. I hope the guys had as much fun as we did on the dance floor.
