Watch: The Holidays Mix The Preatures and Marvin Gaye
Sydney band The Holidays dropped by Triple J studios on Friday where they dropped a cover of the hugely successful single ‘Is This How You Feel?’ from fellow Sydneysiders The Preatures.
Far from a straight cover, The Holidays included some of Marvin Gaye’s funk by mixing in a bit of ‘Sexual Healing’ to close the number.
The Holidays recently dropped a new third single from the acclaimed album Post Paradise, ‘Tongue Tied’.
“It's funny, hearing "Tongue Talk" on the radio now it's like, why did we keep this under our hat for so long?” frontman Simon Jones told theAUreview. “It was actually one of the first songs written for the album, like two years ago, but I think it's a good synthesis of what we are about: hip-hop drum loop, fuzz guitar, hand percussion and some weird keys.”
The boys are about to embark on an East Coast tour and can be seen over the next month at the below venues.
