Estonia’s, Holy Motors is a five-piece band, who describe themselves as cowboys at heart, with a love of shoegaze. Slow Sundown, Holy Motors’ debut full length release, was Produced by Merchandise’s Carson Cox and recorded at Brooklyn’s Kutch1 Studios, while the band was visiting the states. The album comes out this Friday via Wharf Cat Records. Today, the band has shared the album track “Signs”, which is now available to stream.
While the guitar lines from lonely cowboy ballads like “Honeymooning” could easily serve as the central themes for unwritten Morriccone scores, or a Mazzy Star b-side, dystopian anthems like the the rhythmically propelled “Signs” break new ground for the band and demonstrate that Holy Motors are not bound by their influences.
