HOLM - “Through Windows” April 2019
(Quiet Love Records / Salvation Records UK)
“Through Windows” goes back to regular improvisation sessions held in the basement of a bank in the middle of Zurich's financial district. What started informally soon took on clearer form: the amicable and musical spirit of these sessions was captured during a three-day recording session at SomaStudios in Zofingen, Switzerland. The resulting album hovers between post-rock, ambient, and improvised music, but is as personal, raw, and emotional as a diary entry. “Through Windows” witnesses a moment, suddenly an island in the ocean of passing time.
The term “Holm” describes a small island, close to the mainland or a larger island. “Holm” carries with it connotations of a retreat, of a secluded microcosm – an image that fits perfectly for the band. In HOLM, anything is possible and there are no predetermined goals except to share a musical and emotional journey: through space and time, through memories, through life. HOLM is a place to catch a fleeting glimpse from another perspective – and, perhaps, a glimpse of truth through the window.
