The EP Will Feature A Collaboration With Matty Healy

‘The Walls Are Way Too Thin’ Is Set For Release on 5th November!

Holly’s second EP ‘The Walls Are Way Too Thin’ follows her critically acclaimed debut ‘Falling Asleep At The Wheel’, which marked the first chapter in the story of a new global talent. Having just been announced as the Ivor Novello Rising Star Nominee, to being named the BBC Sound of 2021, and Apple’s Up Next Artist, as well as being internationally heralded by the likes of The Sunday Times, NME (5*), The Guardian, and a whole host of American chat show hosts, it is Holly’s remarkable storytelling that has captured the hearts and minds of fans globally.

Holly is about to embark on her first ever tour, having never played in front of a crowd until she performed at a few festivals over the last month or so, including Tramlines Festival and Latitude. Speaking to Metro, she has previously expressed how she has ‘never seen physical proof my fans actually exist’. So the upcoming tour is sure to be special for Holly, and to see that numerous dates are already sold out says an awful lot about the direction in which her career is going. Having released her debut EP in the midst of a pandemic, and recording the new EP in the pandemic too, it’s great to see that she has managed to build, and keep a fan base through the turmoil of the last 18 or so months.

There is already one track from the new EP available to stream, and that is ‘Please Don’t Leave Just Yet’  which happens to be the track that also features frontman of The 1975 (one of Holly’s favourite bands), Matty Healy. Speaking about the song, Holly says; “The song is about wanting someone to stay so badly, even if only for five more minutes, because you know how much it’ll hurt when they leave. I think the desperation in the words really sums up how I was feeling at the time and how so many people must’ve been feeling last year when we were all completely starved of human connection! I often write songs with a bit of a visual in my head, and I kept picturing solitary places, like drifting far out to sea, so far that you can’t find a way back, or old deserted cargo shipping yards with all the lights at the edge of the city.”
