Come the 29th April there will be a new release from ourselves and it's called "Release". Yep, now I know some of you may have heard it before but this is a completely different version. This version is a lovely acoustic effort and it will be available on iTunes and via our online record shop.
I have two questions relating to the Eurovision Song Contest. Who the hell comes up with the decisions for the Eurovision entries for the UK and are they on drugs? The Eurovision should nurture new UK talent not showcase aging rockers who have had a nice career, had their moment and should now be on a Saga holiday.
Yes I know, we've not done anything for a while. We have had the new recording of Blessed on the back burner for a bit and we keep promising to release it but just can't seem to get out of the blocks. Well actually there is a reason it's not been released yet but that's for another post....
Well the release of our next single, a heavy electro rework of "Blessed", is almost upon us and we've been planning the video to it.
Great news at the HOLICEhub as we have secured even more plays for Release throughout over 40 big brand in store radio stations. Some of the places you will be able to hear Release from this week is Pizza Hut, La Senza, Mecca Bingo, Yates, J.D Wetherspoons, O2, Gala Casino and loads more.
Excitment in the HOLICE HQ today as we get confirmation that "Release" has been scheduled throughout all ASDA, Cost Cutter, Topps Tiles and Dunelm Mill instore radio stations. Not just that but also various bars, restaurants and gyms in the UK.
The video to the next single "Release" is currently in the edit suite and it's looking fabulous. We took the typical HOLICE approach to making a video.... get a location then worry about the details on the day. I have to say Loopy (Louise) worked herself really hard and we had a great time. She did get a bit raunchy though meaning a little bit of editing is required........ oh sod it, it's a pop video.
It may interest you to know that the DEMO is dead. Yep, as a Dodo. I very often still hear people going on about going into a recording studio to record a demo. Since around 2005 the need for expensive studio time to record something you're simply going to punt around on a Traxdata CD-R to different record companies is no longer necessarry.
