April 3, 2015 – Austin, TX – Colorful psych-dub trio Holiday Mountain are excited to announce that they will be hitting the road this spring for a North American tour in support of their upcoming EP, “You Be You, Part 1”. Holiday Mountain recently premiered new song “Slow Motion Thugs” off the upcoming EP via SPIN, here: Produced by the Grammy-nominated CJ Eiriksson (U2, Phish), “You Be You, Part 1” is set for release on April 28th, 2015. EP pre-orders, featuring an instant grat download of “Slow Motion Thugs,” are currently available here: The band will be holding down a month-long residency in their hometown of Austin, TX at The Scoot Inn, before they head out on tour.

New EP You Be You, Part 1 To Be Released April 28th, 2015

Formed in 2011, Holiday Mountain is Laura Patiño (keyboard, vocals), Bradley Will (synth, bass, vocals), and Zander Kagle (drums). The group met while attending Berklee College of Music in Boston, where they were brought together by a common desire to push musical boundaries. With influences ranging from The Yeah Yeah Yeahs to M.I.A., Little Dragon, and Major Lazer to Billie Holiday, Holiday Mountain skillfully mixes unconventional melodies with danceable grooves and beats that are only enhanced by Patiño’s wild yet ethereal vocals.

Patiño best encompassed the energy that radiates from Holiday Mountain when, in a packed club at SXSW, she exclaimed, “It’s okay to be who you are, dance hard even when everyone is looking at you, and fuck the haters.”

Holiday Mountain impressively combines influences from world, dance, and pop music to create a virally catchy – and completely unique — sound on their upcoming EP, “You Be You, Part 1”.
