London-hailed producer Holy ’57 is back with a captivating new tune and we can’t get enough. With oscillating synths and a psychedelic bass line, the producer explores the idea of hyperreality and simulation after death with seamlessly eccentric vocals on new single “Hyper-Real”. Drawing inspiration from his own personal experience, Holy ’57 pours out is own raw emotions through characteristic voice-overs and dream-like instrumentation. Co-mixed with David Newfeld, “Hyper-Real” expertly explores loss and life after death, and he is expected to continue the theme on his highly anticipated “Y” EP.
Speaking the upcoming EP the producer said, “I wrote most of “Y” in the wake of my grandmother’s death, so the idea of posthumous memory played a big part in shaping the songs. I find it really interesting how memory operates as a sort of reconstructed version of the past through the lens of our minds in the present. Posthumous memory can sometimes iron out complexities that existed when a person was alive, and it becomes almost like a simulation of the person.”
Having spent lockdown putting the finishing touches to his EP dedicated to his late grandmother and launching his own riveting podcast series Spectres, the artist is ready to explore one of life’s greatest mysteries on the upcoming release and we can’t wait.
