“7 Curses” is the latest lighters-in-the-air worthy whiskey-soaked blues-rock single from Chris Holly. With nuances of Pixies-style production mixed in with the college radio rock vibes and the raw emotion dialled up to 11, few tracks hook you in so deeply from the first hit. 7 Curses definitively proves that there is nothing sweeter than experiencing a fusion of rock and roll and pure tortured soul.
The wanderlust guitarist, Chris Holly, has toured worldwide, rubbing shoulders with Hootie and the Blowfish, Better Than Ezra, and even Slayer and Pantera in his metal days. Now, he’s teamed up with the sensational 19-year-old songstress, Alexis Perry, who has already enamoured the indie music scene. She’s the Taylor acoustic to Chris Holly’s trusty Gibson LPs. If there was ever time to start paying attention to Chris Holly’s career, it is now. New artists as sweet as Soul Asylum don’t come along every day.
7 Curses was officially released on February 2nd; it is now available to stream on Spotify.
