Holy Other returns to Glasgow following his shimmering set at Chambre 69 in May as part of a Tri Angle records showcase, with support from Vessel and Fort Romeau.

With his debut album Held set for release at the end of August, it was actually last year that the ghostly, effervescent fizz of Holy Other’s whatever-step grabbed the music industry’s attention, a fact helped along by his debut EP being released on Tri Angle – one of the most forward-thinking and on-the-money imprints around just now.

Having half signed up for the same mission as How To Dress Well and The Weeknd of rethinking 90s R&B, but with his mind still in minimalism with James Blake and Nicolas Jaar and a seeming obsession with another world altogether, underwater and full of ghosts, Holy Other was always going to be his own thing. With too many slow-building tracks to mention – try on Yr Love, Touch or Feel Something for size if you’re not familiar with him – the only thing to do is to catch him live and feel the sound for yourself.

Brought to you by the Arches and Detourjam, the public were asked to vote for where they wanted to see the act play, with Glasgow being one of the seven finalist cities.

This gig takes place at Stereo, 22-28 Renfield Lane, G2 5AR
