Holy Water, the project of former Heat Dust vocalist and guitarist Jasper den Hartigh, is now streaming their new single "Waterest Him With Tears." The project features drums came from Andrew Stevens, guitar from Neckbolt's Ben Krause, and vocals from den Hartigh's wife, Sarah Contey.
"The album came after an extensive creativity exercise I did called Compost-Turn," den Hartigh explains. "In which I put out 7 releases from friends and myself as physical bookmarks. When it came time to work on a self-titled solo project, this helped the songs appear rapidly.
"This album was my attempt at making a pop-record, while trusting my gut, using lessons learned over the course of my entire musical life. From being in punk bands, to playing slowcore, to ambient noise, and heavy metal. The songs all have references to Dutch fairy tales but also contain more personal writing."
