Holy Moly & The Crackers make riotous party music for the masses. Their upcoming third album, Take A Bite (released April 5th 2019 on the bands own Pink Lane Records), is concise, passionate take on folk, blues and indie rock. The sound of a band who have been searching and experimenting for several years; arriving at a place where they can say this is who we are and this is where we want to go.

Formed in Newcastle in 2011, the group began as little more than a laugh, an excuse to busk through some foot-stomping folk pop. They developed from a four piece to a six piece, with Ruth Patterson on vocals/fiddle, Conrad Bird on vocals/guitar/trumpet, Rosie Bristow on accordion, Nick Tyler on electric guitar, Jamie Shields on bass and Tommy Evans on drums/backing vocals. When we started out we were a real ragtag folk band, Conrad says. We want to tell a different story now.

The first taste from Take A Bite that listeners will be treated to arrives in the form of euphoric lead single, All I Got Is You. Combining deft pop song craft with a stomping, four to the floor backing, it demonstrates the bands commerciality and ambition, as well as their ability to tackle personal lyrical fare in a two-minute pop song.

Working once again with producer Matt Terry (The Prodigy/The Enemy), the recording process for Take A Bite was marked by a shift in technique too. For this album, we did it song by song, Conrad explains. Usually, youll record all the drum tracks and then all the bass tracks. But this time we recorded one song at a time and completely lived it. The band even went one step further during the recording of the Byrds-influenced, folk-rock Cant Get Enough, with producer Matt creating an immersive 60s experience in the studio. Matts mad! And for that one he made us dress up in 60s clothes, bandanas, suits, flares, Conrad laughs. And it was really silly, but it really got us to live it.
