Hold Your Horse Is


Whoaaaa hold your horses, not another band with a horse related name!?

Hold Your Horse Is are a three-piece band from Surrey/Sussex/Hampshire, who have already been played on Radio 1 by Huw Stephens, as well as on 6 Music by Tom Robinson.

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
