Holy Mountain is the new single from New York’s next lo-fi legend, JW Francis. The second track to be revealed from his upcoming sophomore album ‘WANDERKID’, ‘Holy Mountain’ received its first play on Lauren Lavern’s BBC 6Music show. The single is the follow up to previous release ‘John Take Me With You’, which saw support from 6Music, Spotify, The Line of Best Fit and DIY Magazine, to name a few.
Lyrically, the single is a call for spontaneity, as JW elaborates;
“Holy Mountain is a song about going out and doing whatever you want to do right now. It’s addressed to a lover you haven’t met yet.
The video was shot in Oklahoma featuring a bunch of my family there. I wanted it to be a time capsule of my time in Oklahoma right before coming out to walk the Appalachian Trail.”
The follow up to JW’s critically acclaimed debut album ‘We Share A Similar Joy’, ‘WANDERKID’ will be released on 1st October by Sunday Best Recordings. Shortly after this, JW will head to the UK for his first ever headline shows here including London’s Moth Club on 27th October.
