The Holiday Crowd: Sick Days
Use ’em up if you got ’em. Today’s feature is from Toronto band, The Holiday Crowd. Lead vocalist Imran Haniff had this to say about their new LP, Over the Bluffs: “The whole mood of the record has a Scarborough vibe to it and it only seemed fitting to name it with a honorary nod to our old stomping grounds”. Bowers adds, “I grew up with The Bluffs at the foot of my street and would play there frequently. Scarborough, represents the underdog, always the frowned upon for being tough and rough around the edges”. Haniff muses, “Scarborough has so much stacked against it, it almost seemed like The Holiday Crowd needed to stick up for it.”
Self described as minimal and stripped-down, The Holiday Crowd’s sound and lyrics arise from all manner of experience- summer afternoon camaraderie’s, introspective reveries and a few shapely ‘inspirations’ along the way. The Holiday Crowd are a bunch of idealists that want what everyone wants, everything… in the most stylish, well mannered and humbling way possible.
