WL//WH Premiere: THE HOLIDAY CROWD rides the “Bullet Train” to oblivion


With a decade of meticulously crafted emotional-ridden heartfelt indie pop and a couple of acclaimed albums under their belt, Toronto-based ‘professional vacationists’ The Holiday Crowd, comprised of Canadian Vocalist & Guitarist Imran Haniff and English bassist Alex Roberts, are fresh from their brilliant return with their endearing neo funk flavoured single, “Party Favours.”, the seductive groovy A-side from the band’s forthcoming 7″ vinyl single via boutique label Shelflife Records.

WL//WH is very pleased to premiere the bittersweet B-side, “Bullet Train”, that stirs with emotional nostalgic sways from an intricate web of effect-drenched sparkling guitar passions, underpinned by sinuously heart-pulsing bass lines, and sprightly drum beats, to layer obsessive shimmering echoes of melodious, angsty melodrama around intimate vocal croons, wandering through an angsty, urban-life lyrical narrative, cloaked in fear, deception, and inner pain from the shadowy side of a superficial reality.

The Holiday Crowd‘s upcoming 2-track single “Party Favours” b/w “Bullet Train” is scheduled to be released on digital on April 15, 2022, followed by the 7” vinyl edition on June 17, 2022, through Shelflife Records.
