Holly Macve - Corner Of My Mind
Having surfaced online as a bedroom demo in 2015, this marks [Holly Macve's] debut video. In regards to the footage, Holly states "We decided to not plan much before we starting filming, hoping to just stumble across the right imagery and atmosphere needed to accompany the dark nature of the song. All the shots were filmed in Holme Moss near my hometown in West Yorkshire which is where it was written.”
Though she hasn’t shared any new material just yet, Holly has recorded a wonderfully poignant song called 'We Don't Know Where We're Going' originally released by Melanie Safka in 1972 on her LP Garden In The City. The track was recorded in a Sussex studio by Chris Blakey, who also engineers music with Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds.
Holly Macve was born 20 years ago in Ireland and was brought up in Yorkshire. She is now based in Brighton, where Bella Union label boss Simon Raymonde came across her at an open mic show in 2015. He states, "I had a tip-off to go to a basement bar where she was playing. In a room full of beery boys chatting across all the music beforehand, the minute Holly opened her mouth the room fell silent. Hers is a rare gift."
She has been writing and recording with the likes of Bill Ryder-Jones and Paul Gregory from Lanterns On The Lake.
