Nu-disco powerhouse Holy Ghost! are masters of the arpeggio-driven Eurodisco revival currently holding sway in dance clubs around the world. Combining elements of Italo, Hi-NRG, and synthpop, the duo's glittering productions pay homage to underground '80s dance music without being stuck in the decade — top-notch modern production techniques and an ear for pop vocal hooks land bangers like "Hold My Breath" and "Bridge and Tunnel" squarely in the new millennium. Hitting the road with a full backing band in support of 2013 sophomore album Dynamics, Holy Ghost! promise to inspire plenty of late night dancing on their 2014 tour dates.
Formed from the ashes of NYC hip hop group Automato, Holy Ghost! emerged in 2007 after founders Nick Millhiser and Alex Frankel decided to pursue a poppier sound with vocals. The result was their DFA-released debut single "Hold On," a sizzling Italo disco number that earned them a fast following among alternative dance music enthusiasts. After several years of lauded remixes and non-album singles, the duo released their self-titled full-length debut in 2011 to a heap of praise from critics and fans alike. 2013 follow-up album Dynamics contained another stellar collection of shimmering dance tracks, building anticipation for a tour in 2014.
