Bio

“A nuanced interplay of aural textures, ironic lyricism and layered nineties alternative-rock homage.” Zoe Kingsley - Tone Deaf As soon as the first few bars of Long Holiday’s debut album ...Greetings From belt out of the speakers it’s fairly evident that this Melbourne three piece are highly influenced by the 90s grunge recordings of those times like Nirvana (Bleach era), Soundgarden, Babes In Toyland and Helmet. Upon closer inspection though, the band are a little more than that, taking on a modern interpretation of these sounds of yesteryear, yet adopting their own post-grunge take on it all. DEBUT ALBUM "Greetings From" OUT NOW! (In stores & online) New single "Insane" available as free download.

This sticks out ...

This sticks out above the crop of upcoming grunge groups. It's got some nice, menacing snarl where others might be too slack to bother.

Reminiscent of 9...

Reminiscent of 90s grunge/alt rock but with more of a female pop flavour. 80s Soundgarden meets The Breeders you could say. A strong chorus and guitar solo are the standout moments of this song.
