On Saturday afternoon at Oppikoppi Unknown Brother I made my way to the main stage after watching Van Der Want & Letcher perform on the Skellum stage. Holiday Murray are a folk rock band from Cape Town. James Tuft, Ellis Silverman, Justin Davenport and Chris Carter are the members of the band. In February of 2009 these 4 Cape Townian boys with similar musical backgrounds formed the group.

They shared an interest in a variety of musical styles and a mutual passion for sound and expression. The group began writing their own material in the months to follow. All of them were studying at the same university and the 4 found plenty of time to ruminate on absurd topics and listen to music together. In November 2009 they played their first show in a small Cape Town bar.

Their sound draws from a strong affinity for acoustic instruments and vocal work, an interest in folk melody and rhythm, and the inescapable aggregate of rock music. I snapped this photo of Holiday Murray at Oppikoppi 2011 and it has been selected as the Daily Cool Photo on Running Wolf’s Rant for the 15th of August 2011.
