"How You Been" is a song by by indie rock band, Holy Holy. It was released through Wonderlick Recordings on April 16, 2021.The single follows on from the urgent and ambitious Port Rd."How You Been" has gained plenty of airplay following its release to radio, as it started to make an impact across the Triple J Network plus gaining airplay across Triple M, plus there was airplay across some of the Regional Radio Networks as well. "How You Been" is This Week's Hot Debut entering the Hot 100 at #91.

Oscar and Tim are back, just as they look down the barrel of their next round of Holy Holy shows, with a new single that brings them back towards that classic Holy Holy sound.

When we first heard from them last year with 'Port Rd', Holy Holy threw us a curveball; sparking things up, encompassing hip hop fire courtesy of collaborator Queen P. It signalled that they weren't afraid of getting themselves out of their comfort zone when it comes to making their new album.

And with new single 'How You Been', we're hearing a great combo of the strong guitar sounds Holy Holy fans love about the band, with some decidedly more pop-leaning songwriting vibes in the mix too.

How You Been' is a song about heartbreak, though viewed through the lens of a friend or a loved one checking in. Chances are, we've all been there at one point or another. It's a natural fit for Holy Holy as songwriters - their dynamic as both songwriters and performers shines.

“It has a lot of the hallmarks of what we do,” Tim says. “At the core of it, it’s a classic Holy Holy song in the sense that there’s real storytelling. A character based, lyrical theme plays out.”

“Then there’s Oscar’s emotive chord progressions that subtly influence the way you feel. They feed into the lyrics. You don’t realise why, but you’re listening to the song and certain emotions come up."
