"If Trent Reznor made candy sprinkles, they would taste like Los
Angeles' HOLYCHILD" - Ear Yummy
HOLYCHILD is made up of Liz Nistico and Louie Diller. In 2010 the two found themselves in a modern dance class together, while Liz danced and Louie accompanied on drums and piano. They began collaborating immediately after meeting and now make pop music to make us think. The LA-based duo found early success in 2013 through their song, "Happy with Me," which received over 100,000 plays in one week and got to #1 on Hype Machine's Popular Charts. The band continues to receive local and national support, with Nylon Magazine describing the track as "mind-glowingly addictive," Billboard grouping them in their annual "14 Artists to Watch in 2014" and LA weekly naming HOLYCHILD as "one of the ten LA bands who are going to blow up in 2014." The accolades have been sweet and the pair landed a record deal with the reputable Glassnote Records early in the year. Their debut EP, MINDSPEAK, was released in March 2014 and questions society's view of the woman from often times a sarcastic/absurdist perspective. HOLYCHILD is committed to making their own form of music they affectionately call 'brat pop,' and sharing their art with the world.
Swaai Boys is a New York-based tropical rock and roll group whose music is inspired by an obsession with exploration and adventure. Taking cues equally from Ernest Shackleton and Brian Wilson, Percy Fawcett and Martin Denny, the Swaai Boys' sonic endeavors yield gripping tales with cinematic imagery. In 2013 they released their debut EP Meet the Mysterious Swaai Boys, and over the winter produced a sound piece based on Arctic wind patterns entitled Polar Vortex. They are currently at work on a collection of songs inspired by deserts and coasts.
