Austin-based post-punk / synth-pop artist Holy Wire has debuted a new single, “The Ending Of An Age“, which is available across all digital streaming platforms today. The single comes accompanied by a music video directed by Faiza Kracheni. The single can be found on the new album of the same name “The Ending Of An Age”, also out today, June 5, 2024.

According to Holy Wire, the song “The Ending Of An Age” is the only entirely fictional one on the record, recounting a story of lovers trying to survive through an extinction event, coming to terms with death, and the end of humanity. The whole was partly inspired by Lars Von Trier’s “Melancholia”.

Earlier this spring, in coordination with the album announcement, Holy Wire released the single “Lost”. That song was also released with a music video.

Recorded in both Brooklyn, NY and Austin, TX, the album was written and recorded by Alain Paradis. The album and additional synths were produced & recorded by Abe Seiferth, whose credits include Nation of Language, Guerilla Toss, Underground System, among others.

About Holy Wire

After moving to Austin in 2021, Paradis revived a solo project under the name Holy Wire, bringing together a rotating cast of musicians for live performances. The band’s music blends nostalgic 80s post-punk and synth-pop elements with modern influences, creating a unique sound that recalls artists like The Smiths, Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark, and Black Marble​.

Holy Wire has released several singles and recently announced their debut album “The Ending of an Age”, produced by Abe Seiferth and mastered by Joe Lambert. The album features tracks that explore themes of loneliness, nostalgia, and acceptance, all set against a backdrop of melodic synths and rhythmic beats​. Notable songs include “Dream” and “Worse for Wear”, the latter accompanied by a music video directed by Evan Crowley​.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
