Acclaimed for his artfully emotional approach to the world around us, electronic-music producer Holy Other premieres new live multidisciplinary work. This comes after a year of exploration and careful crafting during residencies at Britten Pears Arts and FACT Liverpool.

Artfully exploring intimacy, loss, past and present, his work remains eerily immortal; utterly of its time but also defiantly modern

The Line of Best Fit

Holy Other
This new body of work follows Holy Other’s return from a near 10-year hiatus in 2021 with the release of Lieve, his first album since 2012. The album came to fruition following a period of residential recordings in 2020 in the northwest of England, using the acoustics of Bidston Observatory atop Bidston Hill on the Wirral including its geometrically perfect wooden domes to capture the groundwork for the record, including vocals from Nyx’s Sian O’Gorman, violin from Simmy Singh, and saxophone from Erased Tapes’ Daniel Thorne.

The record, and more broadly Holy Other's return, as if from nowhere, was met with high praise, “The elusive producer delivers his signature sound of mesmerizing downtempo electronica, this time more deconstructed, polished and darker than ever.”

“Holy Other is a critical voice in a world that’s become emotionally remote and his latest record is monument to that fact. Speaking to a humanity that few producers can replicate, Lieve proves that Holy Other’s efforts are just as essential in 2021 as they were in 2012.”
