The Black Hollies Head Softly Towards The Light

Today, Ernest Jenning Record Co. proudly releases Softly Towards The Light, the third full-length album from New Jersey quartet The Black Hollies. To celebrate the group have planned a record release party at Glasslands in Brooklyn, NY on 10/10, and are offering up a free download of the song "Gloomy Monday Morning". After an appearance at CMJ 2009, The Black Hollies hit the road in November for an East Coast tour with Brian Scary & The Shredding Tears.

As for "Gloomy Monday Morning," it's an energetic 60's influenced pop stomp. It's as if the 60's were 90's were 00's and that's a good thing. Raw and catchier than the swine flu, this track is a brilliant preview of their full-length.

Though the band have always been known as a power-house live act, Softly Towards The Light is a distinct step forward for them as song writers and recording artists and "Gloomy Monday Morning," is pretty much proof of that.
