Holychild – “Money All Around”

Here’s why it’s a good idea for like-minded musicians to collaborate: I had never heard Holychild until they hopped on Keljet’s astrology-flirt “What’s Your Sign,” and I quickly became enamored. The L.A.-based duo had the smirking audacity to name their next album The Shape Of Brat Pop To Come — a deft Refused/Ornette Coleman reference and the kind of clever self-fulfilling prophecy that only works if you’ve got the chops to pull of your claim. Luckily, Holychild do, and latest release “Money All Around” is a self-satisfied, shimmering gloat that dances to the beat of our overbearing capitalistic framework. Singer Liz Nistico and Louie Diller toe the line between ironic wealth-worship and pistol-to-the-head pop-star resignation. It pulses and thrums with the crisp fatness of a wad of Benjamins — what’s brattier than getting paid? Listen below.
