An expression of longing for winter mornings spent in bed with the one you love, 'I'm Looking Forward to Winter' is the latest single to come from Australian singer-songwriter Gordon Holland. Taking on a 70s singer-songwriter vibe, 'I'm Looking Forward to Winter' is the first song recorded with Gordon's full band, giving this track a lush and warming feel to it. Inspired by time spent in his hometown of Perth and a holiday in California, the imagery reflects that comforting feeling of listening to the rain outside whilst you're safe and warm inside. Written and demoed in the space of an hour, 'I'm Looking Forward to Winter' is filled with the raw spontaneity of a much needed writing session.
Originally from Perth, Gordon Holland now calls the musical shores of Melbourne home. Gordon recorded his debut single 'Melbourne Bitter' at a home studio in Laurel Canyon, Los Angeles with Luke Tierney (Silver Jet, Chris Shiflett & The Dead Peasants) mastered by Tom Beard (Deluxe Mastering). 'Melbourne Bitter' is a country-tinged song about self- confidence, disappointment and living away from family. He has also collaborated with Melbourne Singer-Songwriter Charlie Lane on her successful song 'The Darkest Time' which was featured on Spotify's official Badass Women playlist. Gordon's single Melbourne Bitter went on to become a semi-finalist in the 2019 International Songwriting Competition. "a scintillating new single ... a personal and bittersweet ode to the plight of a struggling musician." - Walter Price - Global Texan Chronicles. Mixing up alt country with big choruses reminiscent of Britpop, Gordon Holland is confessional, nostalgic and humorous, with his music amplifying his life experiences in a way that resonates with his audience.
