Palehound

We dug Palehound’s debut EP, Bent Nail, and its sometimes silly anti-anti-folk lyrics. This new single, Holiest, takes the lyrics to a slightly more journal-esque place, while the sound itself bucks against that with crisper hooks and crowd-pleasingly buoyant guitars. That last minute is like a sonic sleigh ride led by some fantasy creature. A palehound, maybe?
