Award-winning British singer-songwriter, Holly Humberstone 2024, will perform her exclusive Australian headline show at Sydney’s Metro Theatre this summer. She will also play several festival appearances across the country. Adding to the excitement, Holly is releasing her highly anticipated debut album, “Paint My Bedroom Black,” on Friday, October 13, 2023.
Holly’s Remarkable Journey
From singing at her parent’s piano to hailed as one of the most exciting alternative pop stars of her generation, Holly Humberstone achieved success when the world was in lockdown. Her distinctive vocals and candid energy on her debut EP, “Falling Asleep At The Wheel,” captivated audiences. The EP weaved themes of lost loves, family bonds, and the deep-set fears of youth into organic sonic production, all harmonized by Holly’s ethereal voice. Her talent earned her an Ivor Novello nomination and a runner-up spot in the BBC Sound of 2021 poll.
As Holly brought her intimate live shows to global audiences, fans sang every word of her anthemic track “Scarlett,” proudly displaying lyric tattoos from LA’s Roxy to London’s Wembley Arena. Her sweeping US tour even saw her sell out York’s revered Bowery Ballroom not once, but twice.
In 2022, Holly reached new heights, receiving her second Ivor Novello nomination, this time for Best Song Musically and Lyrically. She was also honored with the BRITS Rising Star award, following in the footsteps of Adele and Florence & the Machine. Holly supported Olivia Rodrigo and girl in red on their North American tours, and she graced the stage at Splendour in the Grass.
Debut Album: “Paint My Bedroom Black”
Holly’s highly anticipated debut album, “Paint My Bedroom Black,” signifies her coming-of-age and transient lifestyle. It reflects her dual personality – the introvert seeking solitude and the extrovert chasing love and adventure into the late hours. In 13 tracks, Holly pens fragmented love notes to distant friends and her boyfriend. The production unfolds into a new sonic landscape, blending teenage bedroom intimacy with the vibrancy of LA and London. It features high-octane pop, neon electronica, and 80s rock influences.
