Holy Esque – ‘Tear’

Their finest moment yet

On which the man with the unholiest shriek in rock – that’s Holy Esque singer Pat Hynes – sounds both shit-scared and shit-scary. The Glaswegians’ follow-up to their rapturously received four-track EP is their finest moment yet, full of the kind of buzzsaw theatrics that make the likes of Glasvegas and Wu Lyf stand out.
