Mamma’s Shebeen gig and we’re releasing our new single, “Fighting Back”!

Holly & The Woods - LIVE! - taken by Shereen Hustler

This Sunday, 11 May we’re hitting Mamma’s Shebeen in Greenside at 2:30 pm for special acoustic set! It’s Mother’s day, so bring your Mom with for a special Acoustic Sunday. Entrance is free, so be sure to book your table on 084 380 3451.

Then, on Monday, we’re launching our brand new single, FIGHTING BACK! So excited to finally bring you a new single and we gave some pretty cool people a first listen and here’s what they had to say:

‘Fighting Back’ is a very gutsy in your face brutally honest track that will melt all the plastic pop songs that are out there at the moment. The song will bring hope to rock and rollers who traded their guitar for a keyboard.” – Bouwer Bosch (

“If you like me miss the 90′s and the angst that came with the songs of those days then you will love  ’Fighting Back‘ . Great honest songwriting and I truly believe Melissa is the last female vocalist in SA that fully uses her range in rock music. Why are girls afraid to scream nowadays?”- Gareth Wilson, Southern Gypsey Queen (

“SA’s answer to Skunk Anansie. Cool tune!” - Francois van Coke, VAN COKE KARTEL (

“After nearly a decade, Holly and the Woods are still kicking and punching well aware they carry their emotions on their sleeve. Their new single Fighting Back is essentially what you came for – feminist rage driven down 100watt guitar amps with an abrasive blend of melodic punk harmony.” – Johann M. Smith, MUSE magazine (

“Holly & The Woods are back and fighting fit with a lekker rocking new track! Catchy and loud and looking forward to the new album \m/” - David Devo Oosthuizen, THE RIFF (

We’ll launch the single on out Facebook page:
