Holly Golightly & The Brokeoffs
HOLLY GOLIGHTLY & THE BROKEOFFS

Holly Golightly & the Brokeoffs, the Georgia, USA duo of Holly Golightly Smith (aka Holly Golightly) & David Drake (aka Lawyer Dave, are back after a hiatus with a equine-themed full length record titled Clippety Clop. This set of twelve songs combines the spirit of punk with the authenticity of rural Americana.

Beyond the lyrical theme of the new album, Holly Golightlys work with horses intersects with her music in a serendipitous way. Ive ridden horses my entire life, she explains. I used to be a horse trainer. I did long distance riding: 25 miles as a matter of course, three to four times a week. And thats a really long time to be out in the wilderness on your own, with only the occasional coyote for company.

From FLAGPOLE, "On Clippety Clop, UK punk turned Athens-area musician Holly Golightly explores songs that reflect her experiences and surroundings. Golightly and her significant other, Lawyer Dave, rescue horses in Madison County, so it makes sense that they'd relate to the folk and popular histories of equine-themed lyrics. Twelve such selections make up what might be the first and only covers album of blues, country and indie-rock songs about horses."

In support of the new album, she and Lawyer Dave are looking forward to getting back on the trail and playing live dates across the U.S., with a European tour hopefully to follow.

ABOUT HOLLY GOLIGHTLY & THE BROKEOFFS

Holly Golightly & The Brokeoffs is the Georgia, USA duo of Holly Golightly Smith (aka Holly Golightly) & David Drake (aka Lawyer Dave).

Holly & Dave met in a China Town smuggler's den basement. Golightly was seeking an upright bass player, to do a small USA tour & Lawyer was the only one she found. After a half hour run-through, they were off the next day. You might could say that this was the beginning of their collaboration as the idea of doing records together was first conceived on those long drives in the American West. After nearly ten years, seven-hundred-thousand miles, countless shows and other misadventures, the time finally came.

In January of 2007 they built a make-shift studio, in the Southern English countryside, to record what they had talked about. With only four days to write, record & mix, the pair couldn't have been happier with the result. Supposed to be a low key release, You Can't Buy A Gun When You're Crying (Damaged Goods), attention snowballed enough fill a year's touring.

The second album by Holly Golightly & The Brokeoffs was recorded in Northern Spain during a break whilst touring their first album. Released in October 2008 & titled Dirt Don't Hurt(Damaged Goods in UK / EU & Transdreamer in North America).

They released their album No Help Coming(2011), on Transdreamer, with a USA tour beginning shortly after.
