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….
After almost a year HOLICE have finally updated their blog. It comes at a time when the blog really needed a new post, but as they couldn’t really think of what to say they kind of left it to me to come up with something. However I usually report on their latest news and so [...]
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.
Fancy yourself as a bit of a conceptual artist? We’re looking for some cover artwork for our next single “Blessed” which is a dark and euphoric dance track driving along at 130BPM.
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.
If you are reading this and it’s not after 15th July 2011 then you can still get your hands on your FREE music download of our new single called “Release” which is out on the 18th July.
I have to say I’m getting a little excited for our next music video to our electro single “Release”. Why? Well we’re going to use Northwest Limo company Limo’s Northwest stretch limo’s as the setting for the vid. They look absolutely fantastic and seem to be the perfect setting for a balls out electro tune like “Release”.
One of the hardest tasks facing any indie band or musician who is trying to establish a fan base and a following, not to mention fake cred along the way, is getting an entry on Wikipedia. Have you ever tried to get on Wikipedia? You make a page and then within two weeks its gone thanks to the over enthusiastic moderators who have too much power. In order to get an entry you need to meet certain targets or achievements to warrant being left alone. Each category is different and music has it’s own set of rules.
Peckforton Castle fire damages the popular wedding venue and setting for many tv, films and music video’s over the years.
The wait is over and finally we can announce our next single “Release” will be released on the 18th July. It’s taken a bit of time to get sorted but great works always take a long time.
From the heady heights of Hollyoaks and Emmerdale, not to mention the new Meryl Steeeeep film “The Iron Lady”, Ste has finally landed the big one. This is the equivalent of Alan Partiridge and his “Hamiltons Waterbreaks” (almost).
One of the questions I get asked is often is “How do you write your songs?” This is one of those $64 million (dollar) questions for any songwriter / producer because everyone has a different approach, so I’m about to tackle this head on in the way that I do it.
Well it’s taken us long enough but we’ve finally scheduled a release date for The Hoo Song which will be Monday 11th April 2011. As per usual it will be available via iTunes, Napster, Spotify and loads of other networks and of course you will be able to buy a hard copy from the COLD [...]
It always makes me smile when I write our latest news section and find that I’m not actually telling you anything about our music. That’s always going to happen though especially when one of a bands members is doing something interesting. In the past I’ve told you about Ste being an extra in adverts for [...]
I think it’s fair to say we all know someone who is in the forces and sadly some of us even have family and friends who have been casualties of conflict whilst protecting our great nation and allowing us to live free lives. We have decided to do our bit for Help for Heroes and [...]
