Holly's first single Desert Owl is out.
'Desert Owl', the first single from Holly's forthcoming album For The Weary Traveller is an unequivocal reflection of her New Mexican heritage.
This memorable track commences with an evocative minor to major acoustic riff, woozy pedal steel, jaunty drum beat and Holly's captivating, earthy voice- placid one moment, plaintive the next.
Arrowsmith is influenced by the nature poets - in this case Henry Wadsworth Longfellow and the line 'The Red Sun on the mountain burst" from the poem Jeckoyva. These words inspire the song's imagery and the personification of nature in the form of a 'Desert Owl' and mark the beginning of the track's chorus.' - Mahoney Harris, Aeroplane Music.
