"Premiere: holychild - "Best Friends""

Pretty Much Amazing blog:

We understand it’s a little early for your jam of the summer, but, uh, here it is, courtesy the L.A. experimental pop troupe holychild – “Best Friends” is the kind of song best listened to driving really fast with your windows down surrounded by your friends. Even if you’re snow-packed into your cold, dark room, crank this up and let the band conjure summertime with a densely layered, eclectic soundscape sitting right on the border between irresistible pop and something a little weirder – you try to resist those handclaps, textured bell, string, and vocal samples, and the catchiest, bubbliest singalong chorus we’ve heard in a long time courtesy frontwoman Liz. The band’s releasing an EP called Tribes in October and we can’t wait to see what else they’ve got up their collective sleeve. Check it out. - Pretty Much Amazing

"Video Premiere: holychild, "Best Friends""

MTV Buzzworthy:

Hitting up clubs is so 2012. For their "Best Friends" video, Los Angeles duo holychild perform outside an abandoned home in Bombay Beach, California, rocking out without fear of noise violations or available electrical outlets. The band chills with biker kids and aging, mustache-loving beach bros, throwing their own demolition derby in the empty house. By the time they're done tearing it up, gold glitter's exploding from the air like a Ke$ha concert. Shout-out to the band's sassy dance moves.

Watch holychild's "Best Friends" video after the jump.

The indie anthem, the group's lead single, definitely lives up to their proclaimed "experimental pop" sound. "We can't be boxed in," goes the pounding chorus, and the band's not kidding. The DJ-warped instrumental opening and twinkling verses sound like a secret Santigold track, while the all-in guitars-and-keyboards chorus high-fives Tegan and Sara before crumpling into an unexpected near-dubstep transition. Throughout, the track is bright, bouncy, and full of more feelings than an ABC Family drama, the perfect song to dance/cry/dance to for hours the night before graduation. The band will make plenty of new friends this week. - MTV Buzzworthy


Still working on that hot first release.



If there is a middle ground between Katy Perry and Bjork (or pop and experimental) in contemporary popular music, holychild is it. Based out of Los Angeles, CA, holychild’s latest music video, “Best Friends,” was exclusively premiered by MTV Buzzworthy who called it the song of the summer.
