Holy Roller Baby Takes Us on a Ride with “Leper Blues”

Holy Roller Baby unleashes an in-your-face song known as “Leper Blues.” The band that arrives to us today from the great city of Austin, Texas, are ones to watch for 2020. The track is an infectious and bold piece that will bring a primative swagger to your stereo.

Holy Roller Baby on Spotify, “Leper Blues”

With music as spirited as their name suggests, the band blends the best of 70s string-bending guitar rock with an undeniably forward-thinking perspective. Raucous and gritty with a focus on songwriting, melody, and substantive lyrics, the band plays glorious rock at concussive volumes while swinging to an unmistakable beat, filtering a thunderous bluster through a soul crooner’s sensibility.

Holy Roller Baby came to life in 2017, and the band’s lineup previously played in the psych/rock band Heavy Glow, playing over 300 shows in the US and Canada. Heading into the world with the songwriting of Jared Mullins and using two lead guitarists, the four-piece was invited to record their debut album at Radiohead’s Courtyard Studios in Oxfordshire, England. Together with producer Ian Davenport (Band of Skulls, Supergrass, Philip Selway of Radiohead) the band recorded a blistering 50-minute, 12-track album that combs through a diverse array of blues-tinged rock, even borrowing amps and percussion from Radiohead and guitars from Gaz Coombes (ex-Supergrass) to do so.


As we head further into this year, Holy Roller Baby leads the way.
