Unholy – [Collard]
Admittedly, I wasn’t hip to Collard until I was informed of the recent release of his debut album, Unholy. Not knowing what to expect, I delved into the project, and quite honestly, I was surprised, energized, and so, so impressed with what I heard. Especially considering that this my first listening experience with the London native’s music, it felt special to hear such an ingrained liveliness in each and every song, emphasizing the wonderfully impulsive notions of Collard’s music. On a sonic note, Unholy will throw everything at you and then retreat into an understated, smooth song without warning. This unpredictable versatility is a signature charm of Collard’s throughout the project, and if not anything else, it indicates the sheer range of his abilities. With this, on a complementary note, the invigorating songwriting here is just as impressive, keeping each and every song packed with emotion and ready to touch listeners with each successive line. Be sure to stream Unholy for yourself below and let us know what you think in the comments! By the sounds of it, London has yet another artist that we all need to be paying attention to!
