Bristol dark-fuzz trio Holy Reptile have released their latest single ‘The Land’, taken from their upcoming second EP due later this year.
Formed in 2019, Holy Reptile quickly established themselves in the growing Bristol psyche scene, playing gigs alongside the likes of bdrmm, The Third Sound, Flat Worms and The Vacant Lots as well as slots at Dot to Dot and Outer Town festivals. Their debut six track EP ‘Yawner’ was released in July of 2022, fittingly recorded in a renovated chapel by producer André Dack, which saw them truly announce themselves as a band to watch.
Recorded with The Wytches’ Kristian Bell, the band approached recording in a whole new way with this release, choosing to perform the instrumental tracks live, capturing the energy of their live show. The single was also recorded directly to analogue tape, achieving a warm, worn faded sound.
