Holy State - Medicine Hat

by Nathan Fidler Rating:7 Release Date:2010-11-22

The little ray gun symbol which accompanies this single makes a great talisman for Holy State's sound. 'Medicine Hat' is a short, punchy surf-rock song. There is a slightly thicker backing to the hollow buzzing guitar than you might expect and there is plenty of melody. Lyrics come second and there isn't a great deal going on in this area but there is enough pump and hook to keep the song moving.

B-side 'Sultan of Sentiment' offers much of the same but with better lyrics "I need you to keep my feet on the ground". What you get from this single is an impression of what could prove to be an effortlessly cool band for this particular scene.
