Holiday Mountain‘s breed of dance pop is a seductive call to let loose.
Formed in 2011 out of the Berklee College of Music, the Austin-based three-piece is comprised of Laura Patiño on keyboard and vocals, Zander Kagle on drums, and Bradley Will on bass. Producing a tonally variegated concoction of pure pop melodies, their songs serve up an off-kilter darkness, peppered with touches of jazz and reggae. Their latest digital release, “You Be You Pt.1,” is a declarative listen driven by layered synths and heavy beats, echoing with calls to embrace your individuality, undoubtedly, while dancing away.
You can catch Holiday Mountain at their residency at Scoot Inn starting April 4th and you can stream their music right here on KUTX.
