Track Of The Day #869: Law Holt – Spit

Law Holt is quite possibly the most interesting artist I’ve heard in some time, and ‘Spit’ is an excellent track.  There seems to be a bit of everything in it.  Pop melodies are inverted and presented in a new, exciting and creative way, while the grate of indie tones drop in and out under the vocals.  It starts in a sweet fashion with blended harmonies, the gentle tang of what sounds like a xylophone and vocals that possess a warm, rich quality.

Just as Holt started to get noticed, she was viciously attacked while on a bus in Leith, Edinburgh.  Understandably, this put things on hold while she recovered and had surgery that saved her sight.  Now, Holt is back with more bite, fierce and strong.  If ‘Spit’ is anything to go by, Holt will enjoy success again, bigger and better than ever.
