Following the release of their single ‘Little Harder’ and two great performances at C2C in London, UK country-pop duo Holloway Road have announced the release of their second EP – Roots.
This record finds Holloway Road going back through previous genres they’ve written and played over the years, fusing a little bit of everything into the tracks in one way or another. Robert & Jack locked themselves in their home studio for a couple of months, emerging with five brand new songs they wanted to hear, including their first ever ‘slow jam’… ever.
In their own words: “It’s the most personal record we’ve made to date, but it’s still fun! We had some songs written, but then some (female related) things happened and we wrote new ones, which turned out to be even better material. Love can be a horrible thing but we’ve realised it helps make a kick-ass record! It doesn’t matter if we sell 5 or 5,000 copies – we’ll still be proud of it. We’ve made the record we wanted to make.”
Roots was self-recorded; produced; mixed and mastered, and is an independent release. The EP comes out on 18th April via digital stores, but a limited first press CD will be available at their UK tour dates with Dexeter, starting this weekend:
