French/Irish Ballydehob duo Les SalAmandas are delighted to have their first and second singles ‘Now Is The Time’ and ‘Mouldy’ feature in episode 2 of the adaption of Graham Norton’s best-selling Novel ‘Holding’.
Directed by Kathy Burke, written by Dominic Treadwell-Collins and Karen Cogan the ITV series was shot only over the road from where Les SalAmandas reside, in the heart of West Cork, in 2021.
It’s always been an ambition for Les SalAmandas to have their music featured in a show, so Julie and Colyne are over the moon with the support shown to local artists. Along with their songs, music from fellow West Cork Artist Marlene Enright will be featured in the series.
“Soundtracks from films and television series have always stood out to me, they can be the making of the show. I always appreciate a well-thought-out and beautiful soundtrack and have always dreamed that something I wrote would make its way into the film world so I am thrilled that our songs will feature in ‘Holding’.” – Julie
“Music in films and TV shows have always been important to me. The soundtrack can help you feel emotionally closer to what the character might be going through or to the feeling of the scene. Having two of our songs featured in ‘Holding’, a series that has been filmed so close to home and where a lot of our friends worked on, is amazing and I feel honoured to be a part of it.”-Colyne
One year on from debuting their recorded sound, Les SalAmandas are gearing up to release their third single Gold (Fall With The Gun), carrying buckets of pride and gratitude.
