Yesterday saw the release of Deliverance And Spiritual Warfare, the debut album from Holy Tongue, following a trilogy of widely acclaimed EPs. Having recently expanded to a trio, with Susumu Mukai (Zongamin) joining percussionist Valentina Magaletti and producer and musician Al Wootton, Holy Tongue synthesize their disparate influences into a striking and singular record. As the press release describes, on the album we find the band “exploring their diverse influences, from the opening Andalusian catholic march to heavyweight dub via jazz, post punk, mystical percussion tracks and techno.”
To bring Deliverance And Spiritual Warfare to life, Holy Tongue enlisted guests Steve Beresford on prepared piano, and Abraham Parker and David Wootton on brass.
For a taster of what’s on offer, listen to ‘A New God Before Us’.
Deliverance And Spiritual Warfare is out now through Amidah Records
