Today’s song is “Tear” By Holy Esque

Today’s song is “Tear” by Holy Esque. The band formed just over a year ago but has already stood out as “Glasgow’s most exciting and inventive new band” according to NME. The band comprised of four young men ranging in ages 19-20 have kept a noticeably discreet online presence, but their lack of banter shouldn’t be misconstrued as an attempt to appear ‘mysterious’—“ We just want folk to focus on the music. The rest of it… who gives a fuck?” says lead singer Pat Hynes in a recent interview. The band is offering their new single, “Tear” as a free download today.

Holy Esque independently released their self-titled EP this past April, which they recorded at a DIY built studio with producer Kevin Burleigh (Glasvegas, Simple Minds, etc.). In support of their EP, Holy Esque recently played gigs with the likes of WU LYF and Spector and were a featured artist at Tallinn Music Week 2012. They’re also scheduled to head out on a Fall 2012 European tour supporting The Raveonettes (see dates below)
