London, UK [June 10, 2021] Enigmatic alt-pop duo Nox Holloway releases their new single ‘Audrey’ today alongside the romantic video via The Orchard – watch and share now HERE. An ode to the iconic Audrey Hepburn, the homage embodies the sophistication and glamour of that era that still lives today. Nox Holloway initially wrote the song on the ukulele, an unexpected starting point for an ode to a muse who defined the 20th century in Western civilization. Still, inspiration has undoubtedly come from stranger quarters. Jazz drums and a guitar that sits in the mid-range amplify the song and prompt you to dance like Fred Astaire is watching and evoking the same timeless feeling as ‘Breakfast at Tiffany's’. The poetic video romanticises the idealistic modern version of Audrey Hepburn with the classic red lipstick and graceful style - LISTEN HERE. In discussing the song the duo said: “Audrey Hepburn is the perfect muse, and we felt there is no better way to put her in song than with a ukulele, which is an important instrument for us as we plan to make it a staple in the fabric of our sound. Lyrically, the song notes that anyone possessing her timeless elegance shines through a crowd, and that's beauty worth singing about.”
Nox Holloway were undergrads turning lemons into lemonade during the pandemic, recording remotely from their home studios in Clemson University in South Carolina, London during a study abroad semester, and Nashville. One half of the duo is a producer whose musical experience started with playing drums and, like any true percussionist, evolved into pianos and keys with a range spanning 10 instruments. The other half is a songwriter, lyricist, and vocalist who is as likely to find inspiration strumming his ukulele as he is in the flow of hip hop by his idols. They found that together they had all the skills they needed to write the kind of songs that previously only existed in their imaginations. The name Nox Holloway is a combination of the Latin word for ‘night’ and the street in London where they found inspiration. More music to be released imminently.
