With generally calmer, but heavily punctuated and savage melodies – exceedingly beautiful on the surface of its sonorous shape – the pristine style of Mr Bison is strong, objective and direct; rapidly feels and circulates over the hardline of its acid creative ventures, with pungent guitar lines that define the sensibility of its graceful, latent and rude style. Nonetheless, despite an apparent simplicity, there is an expansive, but serene brutality overtly diffuse under the stringent and tense intonations of its sentimental cadences of vigorous and harmonious density.
A very compact album, where effusive and dilacerating guitar lines coldly calculate the nuances where the soul of the rhythm reads the elements of a horizon of colorful and crystalline creativity – although its anatomy seems a little fragile, sometimes – despite the fact that Holy Oak does not bring new components to the table, there is an audacious feeling of genuine introspection present in the music, that slowly revolves around its own subtle beauty, over and over.
There is an effervescent and cohesive grandiosity that comes along with the sound, but it is way more subtle than what it seems; completely submerged on the magic of its creative waves, the listener can feel its craving honesty flowing through the veins of its precious and raw originality. Mr Bison certainly aggregates new elements to the art of psychedelic music with this work, departing from the quintessential nature of their own rough premises. Definitely, Holy Oak is an album that enthusiasts of the genre will ardently love and appreciate.
