Hailing from Astoria, Oregon Holiday Friends' brand of pop is joyful and bright, marked by up-tempo hooks and shining melodies, by the dark growl of bass and tom, and by bright trills of synth and guitar rolling over tongue-in-cheek lyrics.
Founded in the foothills of Idaho and cemented on the coast, they've worked steadily for the better part of a decade to define their sound. Learning gradually how to exist in an increasingly cynical landscape, they are sustained by play and the quick, precious joy that's found between the notes.
Their debut studio effort, Major Magic, was recorded and produced with Kevin Robinson of Viva Voce and released independently in the fall of 2014. A sophomore effort is in production and expected in early 2016.
