HOLY STRAYS is the nom de plume of 22 year-old Paris-based musician and producer Sebastien Forrester. The single, released on a limited edition 7” and digitally, follows on from his first releases via LA-based powerhouse Not Not Fun (Peaking Lights, Maria Minerva…).
Christabell A & B, born here as non-identical twins, are formed from massive skittering rhythms, twinkling micro-melodies and hypnotic organ recordings, whilst Forrester’s manipulated choir vocals spiral disembodied through the tracks under waves of eerie echoes. The resulting soundscapes lie somewhere in between an ADHD take on Villalobos’ percussive led experimental techno combined with the subtlety and playful instrumentation of Pantha du Prince and a certain pop sensitivity.
In the last year HOLY STRAYS has remixed acts as diverse as Forest Swords and Loney Dear, and also shared stages with various acts du jour such as Zola Jesus, Doldrums, Sun Araw and Laurel Halo.
