We were about to write something about how the music of indie pop group The Holiday Crowd is the perfect soundtrack for those grey, melancholy days when all we want to do is sit inside and scroll endlessly through Grindr while pretending to read a book.
However, the top YouTube commenter on the band’s latest video “Sick Days” beat us to it, calling it a “strangely unique” video “that makes me ponder about the meaning of my existence. And that is mainly thanks to the deep, stylish and comforting vintage atmosphere that permeates the flow and fully embraces the music in a perfect bond between melancholy and hope.”
The band is about to embark on a European tour in support of the release of their debut LP Over the Bluffs via Manimal Vinyl. Watch the “Sick Days” vid below and check out tour dates after the jump.
