Holiday

Released: 
31/10/2011

This is the first release on Chris Coco's new label, Melodica.

The a side features Scottish folk artist Samantha Whates doing her best to sound like the ghost of Astrud Gilberto and the clinking of ice in glasses of a rather lovely Italian rosé for inspiration and general good vibes. It's a song about needing to get away, a plea to a lover at the end of a relationship, it's highly personal and extremely universal, like a good alternative pop song should be.

The b side is Elton Dub, a homage to lounge music, King Tubby and Elton John in one single track.

There are no remixes. There's an A side and a B side, like an imaginary 7" single in the digital age.
