SAN FRANCISCO, California, US
Artist / Band / Musician
Psychedelic / Live Electronics / Experimental
Starting with what can only be classified as buzz-rock, our quirky music takes an experimental turn with digital and analog synthesizers, acoustic and electric guitars, programmed beats with fleshy drums, and subliminal messages. Really, the music of D.W. Holiday is mostly about the five senses working overtime - but even more so about that sixth sense which allows you to SLOW DOWN.
As a band D.W. Holiday floats alongside the songs we sing and play because we want our music to be noticed first and foremost. Then, once you have injested the concept, you will begin to filter through the music straight towards our words - not just what we are saying but what you are hearing (which internally is more than just text on paper). Soon, the lush textures pop and fizzle like drums and wires crossfading inside your head while the smooth 60's style bass lines buzz and the synths hum back and forth from the left side to the right side of your brain.
D.W. Holiday was formed in 1992 by Craig Clarke and Daniel Crowell. Troy James became a major part of the band in 2007, thus contributing to the ever growing WAVE. The real question is this: Are we ON or are we OFF? Sometimes we have to go too far only to show you that you haven't gone far enough. Simple and yet Untouched. Hated by the closest but loved from afar? What else can be said? We are just men who enjoy music. Almost as much as long road trips, living life, being indoors and out, staying up late, laughing, and imposing opinions upon each other. So please sit down on our couch and let go of all outside influences.
