Holden was founded in Dublin in 1997 by the guitarist Mocke and the singer Armelle Pioline, both writers and composers born in Paris, exiled in Ireland for few years.

They released their 1rst LP in 1998, on the great french label Lithium (along with Dominique A, Françoiz Breut etc …). "La Machine", their first hit, opened many doors and brilliantly started their career; the great german producer Senor Coconut produced all their following records.

4 albums later, HOLDEN is established as a band of strong-minded, elegant and learned musicians, delivering a hot/cold repertoire, altogether sulky and nervous, spiked with New-York-flavoured guitars and teased by ternary rhythms and a handful of epiphanic samples, all carried by the arousing and restrained singing of discreet diva Armelle Pioline, at once modest and brazen.

After the release, last year, of a double album compilation, filled with rare stuffs and unreleased songs, under the name of "L'Essentiel", HOLDEN went back in the studio  this summer to record new songs.
