NEWS: New Jersey’s Holler, Wild Rose! Announce Ottawa, Montreal, and Toronto Dates

February 12, 2009

Backlight Records’ post-rock pride and joy, Holler, Wild Rose! will make their third visit to Canada this March stopping in Ottawa (March 12th @ Zaphod’s Beeblebrox), Montreal (March 14th @ Le Divan Orange), and Toronto (March 15th @ The Boat). The 6 member epic rock orchestra has been creating quite the buzz south of the Canadian border. It’s really just a matter of time before Canucks warm up to their sonic Broken Social Scene-esque soundscapes and hometown influenced Boss-like honesty.

Their new music video for “Marylawn Hair” was directed by Holler, Wild Rose! guitarist and NYU Film graduate, Ryan Cheresnick and Holler, Wild Rose! bassist and Montclair State University film student, Scott Vangenderen and features a cameo appearance by Sounds Familyre recording artists Ben & Vesper. The video is sponsored by KODAK who generously donated all of the film for the project and has already been featured on and Neufutur Magazine in the states. You can view a high resolution version of the, “Marylawn Hair” video here: or on Youtube here:

Holler, Wild Rose! released their stunning debut album, Our Little Hymnal in September of 2007 to instant critical acclaim. While in regular rotation on over 150 American radio stations (including XM Satellite Radio), it seems Our Little Hymnal managed to attract attention overseas and has been spinning on internet radio stations in the United Kingdom, Spain, Italy, Germany, and more. To top it all off, FILTER Magazine hand picked the band for March 2008’s Undiscovered Band of the Month feature and Holler, Wild Rose! also were featured on the “BBC Introducing” program hosted by Tom Robinson on BBC 6 in England.

Describing the bands sound is a difficult task, to say the least. Most definitely a product of our times, they find a home between the comforting folk sounds of our past (Jeff Buckley, Bruce Springsteen), throw in some early R&B groove for good measure, and the burgeoning bright neon post-rock of our current and future musical times (Sigur Ros, Do Make Say Think).


“Had The Verve not imploded, and instead hired a Thom Yorke-ophile Jeff Buckley to sing his interpretation of Sigur Rós covering Loveless, you’d have Holler, Wild Rose! Our Little Hymnal creates the dark, almost frighteningly personal, ultimately redemptive atmospherics of a moving black and white art film.” – Ted Leibowitz, Bagel Radio

“Lead vocalist and multi-instrumentalist John Mosloskie leads this exceptional band through dramatic, melodic twists and turns that will keep you staring — yes, staring — at the speaker to catch what will happen next” – Performing Songwriter Magazine
