Guildford-based indie-rocker HOLMES is another artist who’s been keeping himself extremely busy! His brand new single, ‘Love Me Not Him’, is his third release of the year so far, and showcases a musician who’s growing more confident and bold with each tune that he releases. What starts off as a light and airy track quickly descends into a full-on, in-your-face, all-out banger, with powerful instrumentation, catchy guitar riffs, and the intoxicating vocals of HOLMES himself! What he has managed to achieve in just over two minutes is actually pretty remarkable.
Drawing on inspiration from the likes of Sam Fender, Nothing but Thieves, and Catfish and the Bottlemen, HOLMES is steadily, and rightfully, seeing his stock rise in the music industry. There’s an authenticity and originality to his sound that simply cannot be ignored, and we at Indie Top 39 can’t wait to hear what this ultra-talented musician gifts us next!
‘Love Me Not Him’ is the definition of a powerful and anthemic tune! Simply too good from HOLMES! INDIE TOP 39
What does the song mean to you?
This song means a lot. I wanted to create a big, powerful anthemic record and I think it ended up being exactly that. It’s another step to showing where I am musically and the beginning of what I am capable of and I can’t wait to express that to anyone that wants to listen!
What do you hope to achieve with this song?
I would love for this song to resonate with people. Whether that be 1 or 1000. It would be amazing just to know that something I have written has affected someone in a certain way.
Which Netflix series or movie would you like your music to be featured in?
I would have loved to hear it in Peaky Blinders. Not even because I think it works well, I would just love to see it!
When did you realise that music is what you wanted to do?
I have known for a while. When I was a lot younger I get constant reminders of the reason I want to do music. Whether that be reactions to releases, gigs or just general feelings I get when creating music.
