MUSIC NEWS: HOLYGOOD Announce EP Details & Release Lyric Video For ‘Killing Giants’
HOLYGOOD (formerly known as Light You Up) have announced their new EP Killing Giants, set for release on 22nd January 2021.
In light of the announcement, the band have released a lyric video for the EP’s title-track, Killing Giants, which features US electronic musician and DJ Tony Humphries.
“The song is essentially about questioning the idea of happiness,” explains frontman Thomas Napier. “It was written whilst I was in a very negative headspace, questioning why I, and in turn others, engage in self-destructive behaviours, in the hope that this will lead us to the impossible destination of happiness. Happiness is, of course, not a destination, rather a part of the ups and downs of life. The lyric ‘you’re killing giants in your dreams’ is a way of saying ‘your current headspace is destructive’, as to kill something so rare would be an awful thing to do. Your mindset is violently negative and volatile, and in this state, can you really be happy?”
