(SXSW 2016 flavoured!) Video of the Moment #2025: Holy Esque

By on Friday, 26th February 2016 at 6:00 pm

Today is a special day for Scottish band Holy Esque: it’s the release day of their long-awaited debut album ‘At Hope’s Ravine’, which is now available from Believe Recordings. (If you’d like to read my review of the LP, go here.) To add more to the excitement, in just over a fortnight, the foursome will be in Austin for SXSW. As this isn’t their first rodeo, I asked their frontman Pat Hynes to answer a special SXSW 2016-themed set of Quickfire Questions for us; his answers posted back on Wednesday here.

But you’ve come here for a video, and a video you shall get. ‘Tear’, off the new album, is given a gorgeous treatment that goes from black and white dreams to colour reality, then back to black and white again. Its almost deafening wall of sound can speak for itself, so the simplistic treatment they’ve gone for was a good choice. Watch the video for ‘Tear’ below. To gear up for their appearances in Austin, you can read all of our past coverage of Holy Esque through here.
