Keli Holiday: Live Music at Northcote Social Club
Keli Holiday (Adam Hyde) is here and ready to unleash his debut album, KELI, on the world!
Keli Holiday (Adam Hyde) is here and ready to unleash his debut album, KELI, on the world. Featuring previous singles such as "Song Goes On", "December", "Off My Mind" and "Where You Feel", KELI started with heartbreak. The album was born from the ashes of a break-up, coming into existence in a tiny bedroom in a Waterloo apartment that overlooked Sydney’s Eastern Distributor motorway.
They say life imitates art, but in the case of Keli Holiday, art also imitates life. Hyde describes Holiday as a caricature of himself: "A heartbroken man who still thinks he’s the shit."
Heartbreak is the universal feeling at the core of the record and Hyde captures it with brutal honesty.
Co-produced by The Presets’ Kim Moyes, the album is at once candid and cathartic, revealing and relatable, helpless and hopeful. There are dizzying pop peaks in the form of crowd favourites "Corolla" and also "Human Nature", which features Nicky Night Time of Van She. Then there are sombre synth lows, including 'Better" and "With You", which Hyde wrote about losing his best friend when he was 17.
Having started the Keli Holiday project back in 2017, Hyde says now is the right time to release it into the world.
"Life is a game of learning, and now that I’m 30, I know who I am and what I want. I’m more sure of myself as a person. I’m finally in a place where I feel comfortable sharing the deepest, darkest corners of me with whoever will listen. Now is the time," says Hyde.
It started with heartbreak, but it ends with healing--and hope.
