Holy Ghost get colourful with the ‘Crime Cutz’ video

holyghost

Musical imagineers HOLY GHOST have made their entrance into 2016 with a glow of colour and a track called ‘Crime Cutz’. Blurring old school, new school, disco, synth and Rubik’s Cube like colours in a video clip best played in a dark room.

Having been making music for the better part of a decade, and mixing for an interesting array of talent from Cut Copy to Katy Perry; New York based Nick Millhiser and Alex Frankel have a methodical approach to creating tracks layered with disco beats and nostalgia for old school computer games. The track has that 8-bit style sound (think Street Fighter on Super Nintendo) in addition to vocals from the East Coast Singers Choir, a talented array of voices they found online.

‘Crime Cutz’ goes from an extensive 7 minutes, and yet Holy Ghost keep you entertained with out deviating from the tracks formula too much. The video has an eerie opening, with the sounds of a dark synth controlling the array of colourful lights surrounding what looks like an empty DJ booth and dance floor. It’s kind of like a robot controlled nightclub, coming back to life having been lying dormant for decades.

Holy Ghost’s next EP Crime Cutz EP is due out April 29.

Over caffeinated weirdo who knows the meaning of eclectic music tastes because of Sister Act II. I’ll accept just about anything, except for that one Snoop Dogg album where track seven gives me a headache.
