Holy Other is a mysterious production project out of Manchester, characterized by shadowy beats and a real commitment to tension. We’ve already heard the chilling “Held,” and now we get the entire debut album of the same name, streaming below.
On Held, Holy Other takes the dominant strains of the charts–R&B, hip-hop, dubstep–and turns them into some sort of, well, holy other. It’s beguiling, enchanting music that’s vaguely spiritual in its sinister nature. Have a listen below before Held is released August 28 via Tri Angle Records. [Fact]
