Holy Fuck have always been happy to plough a distinctly lone furrow. Never ones to chase the limelight or hop on any genre-wagon, they’ve played by their own rules for the past part of 15 years. It’s for that reason that Holy Fuck have become one of Canada’s finest, and most influential, exports, with their widescreen, technicolour, crescendo-heavy and highly danceable sound often finding itself imitated, but never bettered. It’s a point made in emphatic style on forthcoming fifth album Deleter.
Arriving a moment where attention spans are shot and anxieties are going into overdrive, here’s a defiantly full-bodied affair that was introduced by acclaimed first single ‘Luxe’ (ft. Alexis Taylor). Having toured with Hot Chip, been A-Listed at 6Music and played a sold out European run of their own, spiritually Deleter is an album that explores what happens when humanity and technology coalesce into one big, semi-organic celebration of the joys of spontaneity, repetition, and individuality.
As the band puts it, “the robots are smarter than ever, and the algorithm knows more and more what we like as individuals, but we have to remind ourselves that there is music in the margins that can go missing and that that music is more important than ever.” Marginal or not, Deleter is the sound of Holy Fuck freely ebbing and flowing in their own unique ecosystem. As a listener you’ve got a choice – carry on with the passive consumption, or push back, engage, and move to something worth of your time. Something like Deleter.
Moon King is the synthpop project of Toronto-born singer & producer Daniel Benjamin. Voice Of Lovers (2019) is his second release since embracing underground disco and synthpop, recorded between Toronto & Detroit following the release of "In & Out", his 2017 debut track for Arbutus Records. In the early 2010s, Daniel was part of the flourishing electronic music scene in Montreal, performing as a touring musician with Grimes, Sean Nicholas Savage, and Doldrums, all while beginning to write & produce his own music. A 2016 move to Detroit and immersion in that city’s vibrant dance music and DJ culture soon began to influence his own recordings.
It’s clear upon listening to Voice Of Lovers that Daniel is constantly learning & borrowing as he listens to music, synthesizing something fresh out of dollar-bin disco & new wave, boogie & euro sleaze. With each track comes the feeling of discovery, of finding that just the right acid-soaked synth or muted snare fill can give a track a little more bounce. First single “Neon Lights” brings into focus the slower, hazy nights alone at home with a stack of records, gearing up for a night out or the twists & turns that follow as Voice Of Lovers unfolds.
