Holy Holy is a musical project that brings together two composers in two different cities: Award winning singer songwriter Timothy Carroll from Brisbane and guitarist and composer Oscar Dawson from Melbourne. The pair crafted their debut record while living in Stockholm and Berlin in 2011 demoing the tracks in apartments, stairwells and snow covered studios of those two great cities. The pair have since returned to Australia and recorded the full-length debut with reclusive producer and collaborator Matt Redlich (Emma Louise, Hungry Kids of Hungary, The Trouble With Templeton, Ball Park Music).

“Lyrically the song examines the desire to believe in something. Belief in the impossible as an explanation for the incredible.” - Timothy Carroll

The band are excited to take their new music on tour, announcing a tour with the incredible Ainslie Wills, and shows with good friends The Trouble With Templeton.

Holy Holy’s debut album was recorded live to tape, and is lyrical and story based, as much of Carroll’s solo work has been, but also revels in huge, full band builds and crescendos. Lush production abounds, mixing distorted duelling guitars with warm, close harmonies, reverb soaked piano lines and wild percussive rhythms. It is both epic and raw, simple and complex. The band has had several special guests surrounding the project either recording on the album or touring live with the band, including incredibly talented drummer Ryan Strath (who also plays with both Hungry Kids and Andy Bull), and Graham Ritchie (Emma Louise), who will be playing bass with the band on their upcoming tour.

Timothy Carroll released a solo album in 2009 which received 4-stars in The Australian. He had a Star laid in the Valley Mall to recognize his contribution to music in Brisbane, won Song of the Year & Folk Song of the Year at the QMusicAwards in 2009, toured Europe, performed onstage at the Sydney Opera House with Megan Washington and supported such wonderful artists as Husky, The Trouble With Templeton & Paul Dempsey. Oscar Dawson was lead-guitarist and co-songwriter in Dukes of Windsor (who released 2 albums, had a track in triple j's hottest 100, an ARIA top ten single & toured Australia and Europe extensively), and has since played with Planet Love Sound, Ben Wright-Smith and Ali Barter.

The band will be playing in their full 5-piece glory for all the shows announced today with the exception of Sydney, where Tim and Oscar will be playing two special, intimate, stripped back shows.
