2018 saw the band release their critically acclaimed debut LP, Slow Sundown, which won them praise from Stereogum (Album of the Week), Bandcamp (Album of the Day) and DIY (Neu Pick) to name a few. They even landed on one of their very own idols’s radar - Anton Newcombe of the Brian Jonestown Massacre - who went on to work closely with the band in 2019.
Since then Holy Motors' incongruence has only grown all the more prevalent and endearing. They remain musicians from an ex-Soviet country who write songs that have been described as “shoegaze that sounds like the old West” (The Fader).The resulting mystique, paired with their ability to write lyrics and music that resonate with a deeply relatable feeling of isolation, has allowed their music to connect with people from devoted shoegaze and western psychedelia fanatics to dreamer cowboys, driving through wide open country roads under the stars.
Their second album Horse will land 10/16/2020 via Wharf Cat Records.
