"It's okay to be who you are, dance even when everyone is looking at you, and fuck the haters," exclaimed Holiday Mountain
's 23 year old front woman Laura Patino to a packed club during last year's SXSW. Those words perfectly encompass the energy that radiates from the Austin based psych dub trio. Holiday Mountain is a vibrant celebration of individuality movement, sweat, glitter, and community. Patino formed the group in 2011 while attending Berklee College of Music in Boston with fellow alumnus bassist/synth player Bradley Will and drummer Zander Kagle. Brought together by a common desire to push musical boundaries, they skillfully mix unconventional melodies with danceable grooves and beats that are only enhanced by Patino's wild and ethereal vocals.
