Sweden’s rock sensation Blues Pills release their long-awaited self-produced studio album Holy Moly! today and are ready to drag the listener into a world of psychedelic tunes, soaring soundscapes, emotional hymns, and Elin Larsson’s powerful soul voice! To celebrate the release of this third full-length creation Holy Moly!, the young quartet presents a new music video for their single “Rhythm In The Blood.”
After topping the charts in several countries and even hitting the #1 position in Germany with their previous studio effort Lady In Gold, the band decided to work with renowned Grammy Award-winning Andrew Scheps and Nicolaus Arson (The Hives) to prove that they are here to stay as leaders of a new generation of vintage rock.
”This album is something we’ll be proud of even after death,” the band reflects. “These songs are from a very dark period of our lives. So much loss, anger, and anxiety. Sadness and change. A separation into reincarnation. We stand behind every note and every word. This album was created in darkness and it guided us into the light again. One can only hope it will give you comfort too.” If you were blazed by the heaviness of their first self-titled album and tripped to the psychedelic soul of Lady In Gold (#1 Germany) you won’t be immune to the effects of this third dose of the pills.
Holy Moly! was written, produced and recorded in Blues Pills’ own analogue studio, which they built in the beautiful countryside of Närke, Sweden. In the old factory building where the studio is located, Zack, Elin and André spent almost a year recording and writing songs. The album was recorded by Blues Pills’ guitarist Zack, with some helping hands along the way from The Hives’ Nicolaus Arson and Johan Gustafsson, as well as Martin Jacobsson from Rovljud Sound. Holy Moly! is self-produced by Blues Pills and mixed by the Grammy Award-winning Andrew Scheps (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Iggy Pop, Adele, Black Sabbath, Rival Sons, Hozier). The album illustration ”Beast” is by the artist Daria Hlazatova.
