Singer-Songwriter Holly Henderson Releases Retro-Infused New Single “Wendy”

English Singer-Songwriter Holly Henderson releases her retro-infused new single “Wendy” and you can check out the single here.



Following on from 2022’s single “The Planes”, UK singer-songwriter Holly Henderson returns with the retro-infused new single “Wendy.”

“Wendy” is a uniquely fresh, yet retro infused ballad, told from the story of a person leaving their dog “Wendy” at home and promising her that she hasn’t been abandoned. Starting out with the folk familiarities of Holly’s arrangements, the mood of the song grows darker and colder however the warmth of the band and the music bring in a reminder that they are never alone.

Check out the track here.

The track is taken from Holly’s sophomore album, The Walls, an album recorded in a farmhouse in the English countryside, which brings Holly full circle from her previous Los Angeles recorded album as she deconstructs her Brit Pop and classic influences and reassembles them into progressive-folk wonderment.

Speaking about the album, Holly says:

“This album sits within a sense of place. As a songwriter, I can only speak of my own thoughts of home and belonging. I suppose this record is a wandering eye over the fleeting moments from the last few years, of when I felt at home, and when I didn’t. When I felt like the walls were tumbling, when they kept me safe, and when they became my prison. I learned the only way of breaking these patterns, was to let people step over the threshold.”

“Wendy” is the latest tale in Holly’s journey, one that takes us closer to the release of the new album on February 10th, 2023.

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
