It's been a while in the making, but well worth it. Hull four piece and long-time Ralph's Life favourites The Holy Orders have released a new single on the indie Mono Sound Records and it's a corker.
Recorded at Mountain Sound Recording Studio in Hull with Patrick Tobin and mixed by Mark Osborne-Lawn, The Deuce Of Hearts sees The Holy Orders taking their uncompromising guitar sound into new territory.
This dark tale of heartache, gambling and excess captures all the energy and vibrant melody that The Holy Orders have been acclaimed for.
Vocalist Matt Edible said - "The Deuce Of Hearts fell together with a few lost chords and a story of heartbreak and excess that revolves around card playing metaphors."
"I've wanted to write a song with a timeless shanty feel for a long time and this gave The Holy Orders the opportunity to get the whole band singing along together."
The video adds an extra edge to The Deuce Of Hearts with it's brash, flash almost psychadelic vibe which is based around a live set in a pub. The track itself; taken from their forthcoming The Worst Day Since Records Began EP, is all driving guitars and raucous vocals, what's not to like!
The Holy Orders have a busy August coming up gig-wise and with an anthem like The Deuce Of Hearts up their sleeve (see what I did there) they'll be whipping audiences up into a proverbial frenzy.
