Hollie Cook – Angel Fire
Hollie Cook shares lead single "Angel Fire" from forthcoming album via Mass Appeal
Impacting July 24
"sweetly romantic, tuneful, and so unlike anything else going on in the pop scene" – i-D
Fresh from signing with Merge, West London-based Hollie Cook returns with staunch new single "Angel Fire." Having garnered acclaim from publications such as Sunday Times, Metro, NME, Q, Uncut, Hunger and Huck for her sophomore album Twice, Hollie’s return is marked by a sultry matured new sound.
"Angel Fire," the first single from her forthcoming third album, exudes laid-back summer vibes with a confident, soulful pop flair. Hot brass, seductive synths and a spritely percussive foundation pave the way for Hollie Cook’s alluring vocals, as they muse and meander through her nostalgic ruminations on love and desire. It marks her first collaboration with producer Martin "Youth" Glover (U2, Guns N’ Roses, Paul McCartney, The Verve), who expertly echoes Hollie’s dulcet tones with equally soothing and infectious sounds.
Hollie Cook was born and bred in West London in a household dominated by music – with Sex Pistol Paul Cook as her dad, music was always around – and she gravitated to the sounds of Marc Bolan, David Bowie and The Cure. Family friend and Slits singer Ari Up persuaded Hollie to sing backing vocals for EP Revenge of the Killer Slits, which she followed by ditching school to join the band on a six-week tour.
Hollie’s previous albums Hollie Cook, Hollie Cook in Dub and Twice have all received critical acclaim with notable highlights in the form of a live Maida Vale session for Radio 1’s Huw Stephens and a Later… With Jools Holland performance on BBC 1.
With Hollie’s natural lyrical flair and vocal purity, combined with Youth’s tight and experienced production, "Angel Fire" lays the foundations for Hollie and her maturing sound to re-emerge as a real one to watch this year.
