The dreamy psychedelic pop/rock nature-drone guidebook to being human.


HOLGANS provide the soundscape for the otherworldly lovechild-utopia of songwriter Ryan Bourne and visual artist, Kiarra Albina. Originally consummated during a residency at 809 gallery (RIP soon), HOLGANS sound (and look) like the dreamy psychedelic pop/rock nature-drone guidebook to being human.

Kiarra Albina's psychedelic animated films, mini-books, installations and drawings have been exhibited throughout Canada and in Europe in galleries, fairs, independent comic bookstores, theatres and artist-run centres. In addition to her drawing practice, Kiarra's current focus is producing 2D animation for projection, and developing sets and costumes, for HOLGANS.

Ryan Bourne has toured and recorded his genre-blurring psych-pop internationally, and performed at Pop Montreal, Halifax Pop Explosion and Sled Island, with Calgary bands Deadhorse and Extra Happy Ghost!!! He is currently developing new work for the second HOLGANS record.
