holychild- Happy With Me
How I came upon holychild, I don't really know. But all I know is that their track 'Happy With Me' is absolutely great. This group from LA makes a unique kind of manic-pop that reminds me a bit of Wild Belle with DENA and The Naked & Famous. It sounds like a weird mix, but it all works. 'Happy With Me' is a crazed proclamation of disappointment and disdain at the lack of romantic possibility with someone. Holychild in 'Happy With Me' combine playfully tropical percussive synths, cheerleader-type chants, and beats that explode in your ear. It's crazed, it's summery, it's perfect.
