After the ridiculously grand, bloated and back-slapping affair that was yesterday's ARIAs, we felt we should counterbalance things by bringing you some good, honest, home-grown emerging sounds. Something unpretentious and free from fanfare. Therefore, we'd like to introduce you to Holland, who might just be one of the Australian music scene’s best kept secrets.
Named after the legendary early 70’s recording by the Beach Boys and hailing from Brisbane, the four-piece are being compared to Band of Horses, City and Colour, Elbow & Badly Drawn Boy, yet look like they should be playing rock and roll... ("beardcore" our our friends at Twenty-Two just called them)
Check out the above clip - which is a Bobbysix exclusive by the way - and keep an eye out over the next little while for an interview with the band and also the chance to win their new EP. Oh, and if you live in Aus, then you can see them live at one of the following venues.
