It’s been nearly a year since Indiana duo HØLAS dropped their icy-themed debut winter. The band recently expanded and will be making their official debut as a trio at The Darkroom in Chicago tongiht (Sunday March 11th) with The Grownup Noise.
Never ones to follow the conventional paths of rock bands, HØLAS has teamed up with Chicago-based house DJ Chicago Skyway for their new maxisingle “The Glacial Meltdown.” “The Glacial Meltdown” is a full on re-imagining of album centerpiece “The Glacial Anthem.”

A little about Chicago Skyway via Little White Ear Buds.com:
“A Chicago native who joined its house scene in the late 80′s, first as a teenage party-goer and then as part of a DJ duo with his older brother, Hernandez learned the art of working a crowd for years before starting in on production. Once he did, he lavished attention upon his hardware, mastering the basics and absorbing every intricacy. It was only in 2007 that he began seriously submitting his music to labels both in Chicago and abroad, finding homes for his refined yet spazzy house tunes on M>O>S Recordings, Eargasmic Recordings, and Uzuri.”
