Top Tracks: Holly Miranda – Golden Spiral

It’s rare that I find a song so baffling as to defy classification, and yet here we are. The foot-stomping ‘Golden Spiral’, the latest single from Holly Miranda’s upcoming album Mutual Horse out 23rd February, doesn’t need to be understood when it sounds this good. This track boasts elements of folk and blues, electronic flourishes and futuristic funk, and yet somehow makes it all work in perfect harmony. They say that Dark Side of the Moon lines up perfectly with The Wizard of Oz, well this track proves that there is some combination of Kid A era Radiohead, Metals era Feist, and St Vincent at her most vivacious that fuses together to form this bewildering beauty of a track. If the planets align like this for all of Holly’s project then her new album will certainly be one to note in your diary.
