The Holy Knives is the sonic vision of brothers Kyle and Kody Valentine (born and raised in New Orleans, residing in San Antonio), a band that infuses the sultry sounds of rock & roll with a tinge of desert psychedelia.
A week after releasing their debut EP, Ritual Bloom, The Holy Knives played a powerful set at Berlin and brought their sultry psychedelic-desert rock vibes to New York City. The four-song collection was recorded at Sonic Ranch with Latin Grammy-nominated producer Manuel Calderon (The Chamanas, Nina Diaz).
Drawing musical inspiration from acts such as Timber Timbre, The Afghan Whigs, and Arctic Monkeys, The Holy Knives’ could be imagined performing at the Bang Bang Bar from Twin Peaks or playing in a True Detective episode. Their belief is that music is a sacred weapon you can use to ward off the march of reality.
It was a great time and I’m looking forward to see them when they release the full-length.
