The Holy Roman Army
Continuing with Irish themed day (it's been a pretty green few weeks in reality!), I can thank the ever wonderful nialler9 for introducing me to the Holy Roman Army.
A Carlow born brother-sister duo, the Holy Roman Army recently released the Desecrations EP, a 5 track cover album available for free download (I'll post the link at the end of the article!)
It is a unique blend of synth-pop, post-punk and electronica. Their remarkable debut album, How The Light Gets In, was released last year to widespread critical praise. I didn't come across them until this EP release, drawn in by the creative reworking of tracks by Bon Iver, the Pixies and more. A real treat, check them out!
Download Desecrations and it's glorious versions of Wave of Mutilation, Speed to My Side, Skinny Love, Not At Home and Here either individually or as a whole via: http://theholyromanarmy.bandcamp.com/
