There’s no denying that Sweden is fast becoming Europe’s new music capital – and HOLY (aka Hannes Ferm) is certainly one of the country’s most intriguing artists. Rising to stratospheric prominence since the release of 2014’s ‘Silver Of Your Heart’ EP, Ferm’s ever-changing career has earned the artist the reputation of being one of PNKSLM’s most popular. From the first downbeat, HOLY’s All These Worlds Are Yours sees sweeping expanse articulated by beds of synth, joyous piano plucking, and sweeping high strings. The album operates a bit like an ambient album or an instrumental work as repetitive ideas take one under their wings and envelop the senses in a childlike awe.|
