The Holy Circle - Sick With Love (Digital)
While sacrilege may be the cooler way to rock, The Holy Circle’s angelic approach always lives up to their name. The profane scurries for the shadows on ‘Sick With Love’ as The Holy Circle draw upon the power of all theories of ballad. Yes, shoegaze and drone are checked off, but it is their mastery of sounds reminiscent of Belinda Carlisle, Bonnie Raitt, and Divinyls that truly set them apart. There is nothing unholy here. These are the sacred sounds of revisionist mom rock history. You know, mom rock for goths.
