An empirical journey circumscribed to a personal laboratory of synthesizers and sequencers. A dreamlike experimentalism that leads them, at the same time, to the strangest quadrants of electronic music and to the most recognizable references of contemporary music. Holy Nothing acts as an artificial animal tamed and deconstructed by the hands of Pedro Rodrigues, Samuel Gonçalves and Nelson Silva, based since 2013 in the city of Porto.
The unpredictability that this amount of synthesizers, sequencers and grooveboxes can cause are now combined with groovy, enigmatic and energetic shows, with unusual fusions between dense environments and warm rhythms, always enhanced by Bruno Albuquerque’s visual stories.
A year after the release of their debut album, “Hypertext” (2015), Holy Nothing were scribbled all over the national line-ups, like NOS Primavera Sound, Vodafone Paredes de Coura, and even in foreign stages, like SXSW’s and Eurosonic Noorderslag’s. 2018 is the year when they will release their second album, with “Speed of Sound”, produced and mixed by Pedro Rompante, being the amuse-bouche.
