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

Their most 'straight forward rock' song yet with a very catchy chorus, its hard not to like this song!

Long Holiday are a mutant mixture of grunge and gritty Aussie pub rock with a pop sensibility that reminds the listener of bands as diverse as Magic Dirt and Skyhooks. Both songs are laden with hooks and catchy riffs driven along by their punchy rhythm section whilst Gina's infectious drawl mesmerises and draws you in to repeated listening.
