Common Holly Sign To Seal Mountain Records

Posted: by admin


Montreal’s Common Holly is a new indie rock act that combined jagged guitars with smooth welcoming vocals to build a charming debut on her record Playing House in October of 2017. The release got a good bit of love from some cool media outlets, and was released digitally by Solitaire Recordings, but somehow I only discovered it recently. I was entranced by a single listen.

But I’m not the only one who has been noticing. Common Holly have announced that they’re signing to Seal Mountain Records, who released our AOTY Oso Oso’s yunahon mixtape last year. Seal Mountain will be pressing the record to vinyl for the first time.

Take a listen to Playing House below and see if this is up your alley for some dreamy listening.

This month, Common Holly is headed out on tour down to SXSW and will be playing with a bunch of cool bands including Phoebe Bridgers, Snail Mail, Gang of Youths, and Ought! Take a look at the dates below.


You can preorder the record on vinyl at the Seal Mountain webstore.
