Beats, Breaks & Electronic: Holy F**k


A little over three years ago, Graham Walsh and Brian Borcherdt started Holy F**k. With a rotating rhythm section consisting of some close friends and multi-talented players, they were described as "Toronto's evil super group." Without rehearsing or arranging parts prior to hitting the stage, Holy F**k wrote the songs from their album, LP, live on tour. Each time they'd return from tour they'd check into a studio and cathartically capture the energy of the live show, recording the songs that had now taken shape.


Now only a few years later, they’ve become a heavy hitting live act with a devoted audience consisting of cultish fans and newcomers drawn by their reputation. They've toured with Do Make Say Think, Clinic, Wolf Parade, Cornelius, Metric, and Mouse on Mars. They’ve also made appearances at world renowned festivals like Vegoose, All Tomorrow's Parties, Montreal Jazz, SXSW, and CMJ.
