Another World – Holiday Sidewinder

By: Walker Lukens and Zac Catanzaro

Episode 2 of the Song Confessional Podcast is here! In it, you’ll hear an interview with Australian, synth-pop wunderkind, Holiday Sidewinder, the world premiere of the song “Another World”, and the skydiving horror story that inspired this babushka-approved bop. You’ll also find out how Holiday got that fantastic name of hers and how she and producer, Jim Eno, made the music feel as ‘Soviet’ as the story itself.
