Holy Esque are streaming their latest track today ahead of the relase of their forthcoming record. On a particularly murky and grey day we have Holy Esque to thank for socring the perfect song to accompany it. ‘Oslo’ is an exceedingly beautiful petrol-stained rain puddle of a song.

Coming to us before their debut LP At Hope’s Ravine on February 26th the Glasgow quartet had this to say about ‘Oslo’. “Oslo was written as part of a trilogy of songs,” reveals vocalist Pat Hynes. “A tragic tale that follows a prostitute, harassed and tortured until her final hour with everything left behind. It began in 2012 with ‘Ladybird Love’, followed by ‘Doll House’ from our forthcoming debut album, and finishes with ‘Oslo’. Emotional tracks that truly reach their pinnacle with this heavy and heartfelt song.”

The band are also taking part in a large UK tour with the details of the dates below.
