Speaking of the writing of 'Holy', Deaf Havana frontman James Veck Gilodi says “It was just a weird, fast melody that I found as a voice note on my phone. But my voice just went into this soulful place with it. And I suppose that vocal style fits with the title – I wanted a vague churchy vibe on some of these songs, which is why we got the London Contemporary Choir to come and sing on this, as well as 'Heaven', 'Wake' and 'Sinner'.”
'Holy' follows hot on the heels of lead single 'Sinner', and 'Hell' which they dropped earlier this month. Are you detecting the album theme around religious iconography yet?
