Hollie Cook

Hollie Cook

The Beat-Herder Stage

Sunday

Since being part of all-female punk/reggae outfit The Slits, Hollie has since gone her own way with what she terms “tropical pop” – think 1960s girl groups mixed with reggae and rocksteady. Influenced by singers like Janet Kay and Carroll Thompson, who helped define lover’s rock in the mid-1970s, Cook’s latest record Vessel of Love, a collaboration with the producer Youth (of Killing Joke), adds more electronic flourishes to Cook’s mix of horns, strings, off-beats, and space. Songs of love and resilience with a taste of the tropical to sweeten the deal.
