From the submissions: Indie rock/alt-soul group Holy Ride

From the submissions: Indie rock/alt-soul group Holy Ride

Holy Ride’s guitarist and bassist Caleb Oldham describes their music as “D’Angelo meets Mac DeMarco.” They’ve got the breezy, trailing riffs of beach rock layered with singer Julian Ernest Wright’s soulful vocals that give them a sound all their own. The four musicians that comprise Holy Ride met while attending Columbia University, where they started out by playing dorm parties. Their debut EP Party Tricks, released in June, is a collection of four tracks of love, lust and heartbreak in the city. On “Movies”, Wright sings, “I’m down to waltz around on common ground / So let me know when you’re around.” However, the band isn’t taking a break after just one release; they said they’re planning to release three additional EPs in the near future, and they already have “about a dozen” songs in the making. -Lily Crandall
