Holy ’57 – “Jep Shuffle”


Holy ’57 is a project out of London with a crisp and refreshing sound. Newly released single “Jep Shuffle” uses tropical-minded key arpeggios, surf-y guitar tones, and youthfully exuberant vocals reminiscent of Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig to result in something wonderfully fit for a sunshine-filled weekend. It sounds like it was recorded on an island in the middle of the Caribbean, with everything from the gleeful vocals to the shimmering guitar tones exuding a carefree sense of island-set bliss. “Jep Shuffle” may not break down stylistic barriers, but it’s a great piece of songwriting with some very positive vibes.
