Not everyone chooses the same path. Some jaunts are exhilarating whirlwinds, filled with excitement while other expeditions are deliberate and inspiring, yet equally satisfying. Some prefer a life in music away from home and others the more traditional route. Members of NYC-based The Holiday Electric have travelled both roads and want to tell their story. On their debut album, Ripper, which will be available this August through iTunes, Amazon.com, and other major online outlets, the band successfully intertwines both the subtle nuances and eccentric traits of such distinct voyages with their refreshing music and honest, pretense-free lyrics. The Holiday Electric’s debut finds the collective collaborating with renowned producer Jim Wirt (Incubus, Hoobastank, Live, Jack’s Mannequin) to provide the listener with a cohesive and expressive piece of music that conveys how music is their sanctuary.
