Born in New York and raised in Montreal, Common Holly (AKA Brigitte Naggar) puts unpredictable compositional elements into a singer-songwriter/folk framework, packaged in textured, eclectic electro-acoustic production. Playing House contemplates the notion that it is conscious thought and deliberate action that defines and cements maturation from child to adult.

There’s a deceptive simplicity to the album’s sparse arrangements and an ephemeral hue to her voice – all of which add a haunting atmospheric quality to her melancholic, deliciously dark contemporary indie-folk songs. Common Holly brings you to a cabin by the lakeside, a desert, and, of course, internalized emotions.
“I am the lizard slinking through the valley of regret.”
