Three years after their last album Dynamics Alex Frankel and Nick Millhiser aka HOLY GHOST! return with new music. The New York-based disco pop duo will release its new EP Crime Cutz on April 29 via DFA. The band also premired the title-track via Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 radio show. Here is what Millhiser has to say about the song via a press statement:
Coming out of recording and then subsequently playing/touring the last record, we didn’t have a clear game plan for new music other than a broad goal of trying to do stuff that was instantly rhythmically gratifying. As a drummer, I get parts that I find to be rhythmically catchy stuck in my head all the time. The drums on ‘Very Ape’ by Nirvana or the confusing synth hook on ABBAs ‘Gimme Gimme Gimme’ or the weird angular interplay between synths and guitar on ‘I Feel Your Love Coming On’ by Chic. So this was an attempt to do something that was sort of rhythm ear candy. Simple. Angular. Funky. Physical. Fun.
Quite an intense selection right? You can enjoy the colourful Crime Cutz music video right here.
