“Joshua Snakes” Common Holly

Common Holly has shared a new video for “Joshua Snakes”, the track is off her album, When I say to you Black Lightning, out October 11th on Royal Mountain/Barsuk Records. Along with the news the singer/songwriter has announced new tour dates, including a run supporting Pinegrove, as well as a headlining tour in November. Full details can be found below.

When I say to you Black Lightning isn’t one singular statement, it documents a period of growth. The songs were written mainly over two years and they all reflect potent moments from that time. While it’s obviously personal and based off of my own experience, I want this album to feel familiar— life gets complicated as we grow, people form relationships to each other, they lose things, they discover pain, fear, self-delusion; sometimes it’s funny, sometimes it’s weird, often it sucks—and we have to navigate our way through all of that.”
