Holy Moly & The Crackers make riotous party music for the masses; a passionate take on folk, blues and indie rock“with a massive slab of rock and soul, Holy Moly fire on all cylinders, and perform with an uninhibited joy”. Louder Than War
The past two years have been game changers for Holy Moly & The Crackers. The ever-evolving folk-alt-rock group, led by vocalist Ruth Patterson, from Newcastle Upon Tyne released their new album ‘Salem’ in July 2017 on their own Pink Lane Records label. The album received acclaimed reviews from R2 Magazine, Folk Radio UK, The Crack, Clash, No Depression, Blown Speaker and has been championed by BBC Introducing and RadioX.
Following the album release, HMATC have toured the UK twice, selling out venues across the country, and made successful debuts in The Netherlands, France, Germany and Italy as well as continuing their success on the festival circuit. They’ve pulled off an accoladed appearance at Glastonbury, appeared at Boomtown Fair, Bestival + Camp Bestival and graced the main stages at festivals such as Beautiful Days, Bearded Theory, Moonbeams and Colours of Ostrava in the Czech Republic.
‘Salem’s’ lead single, the barnstorming indie-rock anthem ‘Cold Comfort Lane’, was included on major Spotify playlists including Fresh Finds, Fierce Femmes & New Noise, then found significant sync success, with ‘Cold Comfort Lane’ used by E4, BT Vision, Capital One, Ultimate Ears, KIA Sportage Cars and the end credits track for the 2018 summer blockbuster movie Oceans 8.
