UK alternative singer and guitarist, Holly Henderson, has unveiled her new single and video “Loneliness” via a premiere on FLAUNT Magazine. “Loneliness” is a quintessential Britpop song, mixing warm guitars with shimmering highlights while Henderson’s instantly alluring vocal melodies float over the driving beat. The video, directed by George Mays (Skrillex, Red Bull Media), demonstrates the boredom and anxious feelings that stem from being alone in the digital age. The single serves as the first release off Holly Henderson’s upcoming debut full-length album, Monday Green, which she worked on with notable guitarist Pete Thorn and will be out June 7th on Trend & Chaos. You can watch the music video for “Loneliness” here or listen to the single on most streaming services here.
On the track, Holly Henderson stated:
“‘Loneliness’ is about being all dressed up with nowhere to go, of being a hopeless romantic in the modern age. We fabricate our best selves online, yet we stay in the confines of our bedrooms and become trapped in a superficial circle of proving ourselves to everyone, and getting nothing tactile and genuine back in return. It mocks the ridiculousness of us being more connected than ever, and at the same time, totally alone.”
Born and raised in Maidstone, Kent, UK, Holly Henderson grew up as the weird kid that would draw on your walls and freak out other children by casting spells on them. Hailing from a town where the norm was to get a job and start a family, Holly started to see another path after immersing herself in the records of acts like Jethro Tull, Fleetwood Mac, Pulp, and David Bowie. In light of heading to university, she joined a punk band and spent the next two years playing hundreds of gigs around the UK, while also beginning to craft her own material. As an unknown artist in Kent, Holly spent the next few years pushing her creative boundaries by writing and releasing music non-stop, until suddenly, she found a new fan from across the pond. In 2017, through a mutual appreciation of their work, Holly Henderson met well-known guitarist and producer Pete Thorn (Chris Cornell, Courtney Love), and soon headed to Los Angeles to begin working with him on what would become her first full-length album, Monday Green.
The ten songs on the album showcase Holly’s diverse range, from beautiful lush ballads to melt your face off alterna-pop anthems, all featuring intricate guitar work played by Henderson herself. After kicking off the year performing on the BOSS stage at NAMM in Los Angeles and with a new album on the way, Holly Henderson is set to make her mark in 2019.
