WATCH: Common Holly - 'Joshua Snakes'

A big perk of running this blog is the (often endless, it seems) submissions I receive. It's impossible to write about all the tracks but I do try my best to give each a listen and try to share as much as I can, and it's always great to find something that I might otherwise not have discovered. Excited to share a new track and video from Common Holly, AKA Montreal-based Brigitte Naggar. New track Joshua Snakes is taken from her upcoming album When I say to you Black Lightning which is due for release on 18th October. I love the moment that the guitar kicks in properly around the two minute mark - what a riff!

The video is an interesting watch too - with director Steven Z taking inspiration from film The Indian In The Cupboard (1995) and showing a miniature Brigitte in a drawer in a teenager's room, helping her to find focus in her dancing. There's a warning on the video itself but just to be sure - there's a lot of flashing in the video which may trigger seizures for people with photosensitive epilepsy.


With a run of North American dates coming up later this year, there are European shows being announced soon so be sure to keep an eye out and follow Common Holly online for news of those!
