The Holy Circle - "Free and Young"

Dad rock gets a lot written about it, but what about mom rock? More specifically, what about goth mom rock? That's how The Holy Circle are described, and I can't really argue. "Free and Young" has a throwback feel to it, almost like Belinda Carlisle or The Bangles, but the dark goth side of that. It's incredibly minimal but with plenty of shoegaze or dream pop fuzz. It feels like more mainstream and beloved music from the late 80's and early 90's, but a bizarre twisted version of that. At least, that's how it starts. By the end the song devolves into a mess of plodding feedback and noise. So the song is basically perfection

You can listen to "Sick With Love" below. Sick With Love, the new EP from The Holy Circle, will be out July 19 on Deathbomb Arc. You can pre-order a copy here. Fore more on The Holy Circle, check out their Facebook.
