Expect to be seeing a lot of the Holy Other in the near future. A master at combining R&B, UK garage, and house Holy Other is coming off the success of his debut EP With U and is set to release his debut album, Held(8/28, Tri Angle records). With U was about the breakdown of a relationship, while Held is about the lulls and lifts in a relationship, the moments when one wishes to be held and the moments when one must hold. Check out Holy Other's "Love Some1" track below to get a sense of how firm the artists hold is.
Holy Other also announces a series of summer tour dates. The tour will take Holy Other all over Europe, and on September 1st the artist will be making a very special stop at New York's PS1. A little known group called Atoms For Peace will be playing, too.
