Tip of the Week: Hold Your Horse Is - Welcome To Obscurity
[Dan Lucas joins the bbc.co.uk/introducing family this week as Assistant Producer. In a previous life he worked at Radio 1 and helped produce the recent Hello Glastonbury! documentary for BBC Four. He likes techno. Say hello! ...Richard]
Whoaaaa hold your horses, not another band with a horse related name!?
Their name comes from the title of a track by experimental Californian rockers Hella, although Hold Your Horse Is sound closer to 90's American indie, than Nintendo-influenced math rock (as described on Hella's Spotify biography).
They are currently on tour with label mates Shoes and Socks Off, although one day they hope to organise a horse band only tour with Pulled Apart by Horses, Horse the Band, Caution Horses and Wild Stallions [with special guests Gallops, Foals, Race Horses and New Young Pony Club? Ed.]
This is their new single Welcome to Obscurity from their new EP, Rammin' It Home which came out in August
