Holychild, comprised of Liz Nistico and Louie Diller, signed with Glassnote Records in January. The label is home to breaking acts like Childish Gambino and Chvrches. As Holychild, Nistico and Diller released their debut EP "Mindspeak" yesterday. Over four tracks, the duo tinkers with sugary sweet pop coated in experimental production. The excellent EP is a real treat on the ears and serves as a nice introduction to Holychild.
Prior to signing with Glassnote Records, Holychild had already released a music video last year for "Playboy Girl," one of the tracks on "Mindspeak." Taking a page from Beyoncé's book, Nistico and Diller put out music videos for rest of the songs on the EP: "Happy With Me" (watch up top), "Everytime I Fall" (video here) and "Pretend Believe" (video here). The trilogy follows Nistico (who also directed the series) and her girlfriends as they're put-on and put off by a group of older men. She still makes sure to get down with Diller during the performance scenes.
Holychild's debut EP "Mindspeak" is now available on iTunes.
