Holy Wars was founded in early 2017 by front woman Kat Leon (Sad Robot) and co- creator Nicolas Perez (The Beta Machine, Kitten, Sad Robot).
The twisting chord progressions Holy Wars employs might at times call to mind Radiohead circa okcomputer ; the band’s canon fire riffs and soaring melodies could be likened to the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. It is as punk in attitude as it is as melodic and precise in musicality.
In 2017 Holy Wars released the debut EP ‘Mother Father’. The recording was met with critical acclaim.
“The propulsive sounds and moving lyrics that drive ‘Mother Father’ are so good in every way”-Huff Post(Best of music list 2017)
“...a distinctly heavy synth-rock sound that’s somewhere between Siouxsie and Suicide with a modern production sheen.” – Los Angeles Times
“Orphan” is stunning- Alternative Press(listed as #1 on Alternative Press’ songs you need to hear)
“There are records that move you, but then there are those that make you feel emotionally vulnerable and whose effect is everlasting. This is how Kat Leon's – a.k.a. Holy Wars – debut EP, 'Mother Father', will affect all those who experience one of the most powerful records of the year. …”-The Revue
