“Words are my main love,” she declares. “I love songs that tell stories and take you somewhere else. I’ve always been drawn to that old country sound with its simple and memorable melodies. I enjoy music that feels timeless, that you don’t know quite when it was recorded.” throughout, ‘Golden Eagle’ remains beautifully spare & delicate, putting Holly’s goosebump-raising voice centre stage, beautifully controlled yet riven with feeling. her voice sits somewhere between the listless drawl of Lana Del Rey & the sweet Americana warmth of Julia Jacklin & has 10 songs of haunting melodies with which to devastate us.
“Like an ethereal offspring of Nick Cave blessed with the stark musical backdrop of Johnny Cash’s American series of recordings, 21-year-old Macve turns country music on its head.” 4/5 - Record Collector
“Macve displays an innate talent for exquisite songwriting and storytelling in a voice that is just jaw-dropping”. 8/10 – Line Of Best Fit
