Holy Moly & The Crackers
A powerhouse live proposition, the innovative and fiery folk-rockers from Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, who mash together unique flavours of Americana, rock and indie with a punk-ish edge, have become renowned for their blazing live shows.
Building a loyal and enthusiastic fan base over the years, they first tasted success when 2017 single "Cold Comfort Lane" was picked up by Hollywood and used in the vibrant, stick-it-to-the-man blockbuster Oceans 8.
Leaning into Americana influences, as well as indie-folk, the sleek beats and production of Danger Mouse and the pounding riff-o-rama of Jack White at his most crazed, their music feels like it could have been exhumed any time from 1970. But this is no pastiche. No other band could twist their own DNA in such a way whilst still standing so tall, still inviting the chaos, the glory and catharsis of a sing-a-long folk-rock gathering.
