London-based writer and multi-instrumentalist Holt shares her highly anticipated brand-new EP alongside a stunning music video for recent single ‘The Riverbed’.
Focused on building cinematic soundscapes, Holt creates music which is ethereal, haunting and emotive. Her influences range from the evocative sounds of Bjork, Bat for Lashes and Enya, the beats and percussion of Massive Attack and Nils Frahm, to the minimalist style of Philip Glass and Max Richter.
Now embarking on her new journey alongside notable producer Jamal Hadaway, Holt shares her best work to date. The new EP includes recent ethereal single ‘Found My Way’ and beautifully conflicting track ‘The Riverbed’.
“The songs on ‘Mirror Through You’ emerged during the various lockdowns of 2020, and in the run up to having my first child”, explains Holt. “Deeply personal and reflective, the songs draw on themes of isolation and loss (felt particularly during the last 18 months) – but they also galvanise to find and follow your own path amidst the madness – I suppose a bit of a call to action for my daughter (when she’s older!). The title is taken from the opening line of The Riverbed, which seemed to sum up the reflective nature of the EP nicely.”
As well as releasing the full EP, Holt has unveiled the official music video for recent hit single ‘The Riverbed’. A track that starts simply with piano, vocals and a crisp minimal beat before descending into a chaotic synthy madness. Check out the video right HERE.
When talking about the official music video Holt mentions,
“The video for The Riverbed is a mind-bending journey set in a highly urban, concrete environment, and edited to feel glitchy and uncomfortable – a visual presentation of the nature / human conflict (and very fun to make).”
The build up towards the release of ‘Mirror Through You’ has seen Holt gain the attention she deserves, picking up support from the likes of CLOUT who premiered ‘The Riverbed’, LOCK Magazine, FLEX, Drop The Spotlight, Spinex, Indie-Music and much more. Holt’s previous EP release ‘Heavy Water’ has impressively gained 92,000 streams on Spotify alone. With her new EP release and an imposing music video to boost, it’s such an exciting time for an artist on the rise and now is the perfect time to get onboard.
