Holy Locust – “Beneath The Turning Wheel” Album Review –  4.7 / 5 stars 
“Holy Locust masterfully weaves together the tapestry of emotions experienced during these precarious times, channeling the collective anxiety, anger, and elusive hope into their music” – FOLK N ROCK 2023



Holy Locust is an American Folk band pushing the boundaries of genre and tradition. With songs ranging from the aggressive and experimental to melodic and anthemic. Their evocative group vocal harmonies ascend over dynamic rhythms and catchy melodies, while orchestral strings  pull and wail. Their genre bending sound is as at home in a listening room or theatre as it is underneath a highway overpass or punk house basement. Holy Locust’s music is a unique and at times haunting statement of defiance against the exploitation of consumer culture.

About Sophomore Album “Beneath the Turning Wheel” Released June 16th, 2023: 

The second full length album from New Orleans crusty folk hexad Holy Locust, is a lively expression of the anxiety, anger, and elusive hope symptomatic of living through these precarious times.  Existential and political themes wind through an aggressive and delicate soundscape adorned by orchestral strings that ascend and fall while dynamic rhythm changes give way to anthemic melodies and eerie harmonies.  BTTW reminds us we are passengers barrelling towards some unknown cataclysm many of us already being churned beneath the wheels and machinations of a few madmen or confined by devices of our own making.  It is a triumphant soundtrack for searching through strange and desolate lands to find the others willing to storm the engine and take back our lives.
