The Holy Circle prep Deathbomb Arc debut Sick With Love, premiere new track "Lovely One"

Death-metal expats turned purveyors of “goth mom-rock” The Holy Circle seep their brand of shoegaze in impenetrable gloom. Sharing catalog space with weirdo-rap outfits like clipping. and True Neutral Crew, the Baltimore trio plays the part of unlikely outliers as they prep their first release on Deathbomb Arc: Sick With Love, arriving July 19.

The EP’s first single, “Free and Young,” dropped earlier last month, described by post-punk.com as “David Lynch’s take on sixties doo wop and early rock n’ roll.”

TMT is the plug for your next dose of The Holy Circle’s howling, industrial dream pop: “Lovely One,” which furthers this vision of the band as performers at Twin Peaks Roadhouse, letting tectonic basslines rip as neon flickers. A chiming, gothic guitar riff threads through stretched syllables, dragging the listener deeper into melancholia.

Pre-order Sick with Love digitally here (and here on cassette) — and catch their upcoming show at Ottobar in Baltimore tonight (June 26). Even the poster resembles a Lynchian homage!
