Holywater

Rock'n'roll is not just turning up the volume, tightening the three distortion pedals that surround the microphone, tearing the voice and shaking the head as if your life were going by. After five albums and a seven-year record silence, Holywater understood that, in order to revolutionize others, they had to revolutionize themselves.

Ricardo Rodríguez’s (voice, guitar, composition) retirement to the "forest" motivated a different working approach in Holywater; the trio (Martín Alonso, Mito and Ricardo), changed their rehearsal room to Martín’ living room, sheltered by a Spanish guitar, an acoustic guitar and a bass; a naturalistic conceptual inspiration where life surrounded by A Paradanta nature and wildlife ended up emitting their sounds in the new compositions of the Galician combo.

With a sound inspired by the sketches of nature, that changed the virulence and discharge of electric rock by wooden instruments, Holywater locked themselves in Planta Sónica 2 to record, with Álex Vilas on drums, what is likely to be their most deep, direct and without maneuvers or ambages album: "Arboreal" (Ernie Records, 2019), plain truth from the first to the last note.

Without losing the rocker packaging and a sound reminiscent of Neil Young's "Harvest" album, approaching the electroacoustic of bands like Alice in Chains or Pearl Jam, to the purest range of Uncle Tupelo or Whiskeytown, "Arboreal" shows that rock'n'roll does not understand volumes or pirouettes or maneuvers of escapism, but the truth.
