Holy Now make indie pop music built around captivating melodies and heartbroken lyrics. Songs about an unwillingness to grow up and stagnate. Timeless pop music with intimate melodies, yelling drums and sprawling choruses. Jangly fuzz pop where euphoria meets insomnia. 

Based in Gothenburg, Sweden, the band (consisting of members Julia Olander, Ylva Holmdahl, Samuel Von Bahr and Hampus Eiderström Swahn), debuted in 2016 with the EP "Sorry I Messed Up". The follow up EP "Please Call Me Back" was released in 2017 and helped establish Holy Now as one of the more promising bands on the prosperous Swedish pop scene. Following the releases the band played at both festivals and clubs around Scandinavia and UK, earning them a reputation for their energetic and uplifting liveshow.  

Debut album "Think I Need The Light" was released 27 April, 2018, via Lazy Octopus Records.

When they are not setting broken bones or burying the dead, Newcastle based indie rockers Dog Years have been busying themselves recording their first studio album 'A Flame in Waiting'. Ten years in the making, they've created a diverse and relentless racket: melodic and vitriolic, jagged and jangly, furious and forlorn, laced with sweet boy/girl harmonies from husband and wife Simon and Carly Fee. Each song bears the hallmarks of Dog Years' warped lyricism and straight-up pop sensibility.
