More of a shoegaze sound from David on this track, as well as the whole album (The Holy Pictures (2008)) in general — for me, i’m digging it! This album as a whole is more about a journey and paying homage to David’s influences and loves.
Mellow vocals, warm bass sounds and 60’s esque drum kits played in a local pup adron this track. What surprised me the most was David’s vocals on the track, I guess I never knew he could sing and does it quite well.
Be sure to check his video for his first single from The Holy Pictures – I Heard Wonders:
Holmes began DJing in the pubs of his native belfast from the age of 15. His first hit was the song “DeNiro”, with Ashley Beedle, in 1992. In the early to mid 1990’s he ran two highly acclaimed and successful club nights in the Belfast Art College known as Sugar Sweet and Shake Yer Brain. Famously, the dance group Orbital wrote the track “Belfast”, released on their debut album “Orbital”, after playing at Sugar Sweet.
