Holy Esque – Doll House

I’ve just got a sneaking feeling that Holy Esque, had they emerged in late 2009, could be labelled as emo-pop. Which is not a happy thought. They’re teetering on that unfortunate precipice with latest track Doll House, their quivering intensity (which we were so smitten with on their first few singles) is still there in spades but they seem to have fallen back on downtrodden yet uplifting chord progressions that are terrifyingly reminiscent of My Chemical Romance at their worst… Not that they’re actually “emo” just yet. It just sort of feels like they might be venturing down that unenviable path.
