Dance outfit Holy Balm hail from Sydney. After years of performing on the outskirts of Sydney’s underground music and art scenes, the band have moved through improvised, longer-form beginnings to create their own idea of an endless dance floor.

Traipsing through hazy, sultry tropical flavours to brooding dark-wave-tinged ballads, the band take a daring position within the realm of dance and synthbased music.

Live percussion punctuates houseinfluenced beats in the vein of Arthur Russell (Go Bang!) and loose, wobbly synth lines reminisce on Larry Heard’s brand of ‘80s Chicago house

This debut album coincides with a national tour this August, including performances at PICA in Perth and the 4ZZZ Radiothon in Brisbane.

Their debut music video directed by Angela Bermuda (Circle Pit, Ruined Fortune), has been featured on primary music blogs, and was made ‘Indie of the Week’ at Rage on the ABC with regular programming throughout June this year. • ‘Take It” finds the ESG-influenced crew exploring a dystopic, danceable world inhabited by vintage drum machines and wobbly synthesizers, as Emma Ramsay’s elegantly wasted vocals lull us into a tranced-out daze’ – Gorilla Vs. Bear
