On February 25th, 2017, we released our debut EP under our band name. We wanted to share a little about what our band name means. We're about heartfelt songs, examining everything in life carefully. Our name kind of came from that. The idea that we need to hold fast to that which is good, & that life is not always easy. I write songs about love, friendship, depression, family, the past, & the future. Pretty much anything that comes to mind. What's funny is I'm pretty sure the real story of how we got our band name has to do with Dictionary.com. "Holdfast" was the "Word of the Day." I had kept a list of band name ideas in my iPhone notes, & most of them came from those "Words of the Day." I admired the thought of "Holdfast" being one word, but it's meaning being in a verbal sense. Holding fast to each other is what we- as brothers - have done, & it’s what we all will continue to do through this life.

The Sickly Hecks
The Sickly Hecks
The Sickly Hecks, who turn out a couple of fried amps worth of guitar tropes and distortion laced with hopeless stoner/loner incantations sung through melodies in the selfish, mostly monosyllabic vocabulary of rock’n’roll. The production value is raw, using tricks borrowed from the Wipers, Sonic Youth, Wavves and early-era Bright Eyes. The vocal hooks themselves come fast over three melted chords and an onslaught of feedback, distortion, shimmering guitars dance into carbonated choruses that feel, at times, almost anthemic, revealing the back-to-basics pop song that were always underneath. The songs stumble their way from stoned, lazy beauty to speed-freak noise, to almost-bouncy pop - there’s a heart-on-sleeve vulnerability here that feels more insular, self-contained and unsettling, as if the party boys locked themselves away in the bedroom and the results are better than good.
