Holy Ghost! Reveal "Crime Cutz" Off New EP
2013 brought us an electro-funk party as Holy Ghost! revealed Dynamics. Three years later, we're finally back in the swing of things as the Brooklyn duo have revealed a brand new, original song, titled "Crime Cutz." A first listen of the track was revealed last night on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 Radio, and the title will also be what the full EP is called.
Nick Millhister, 1/2 of the band's creative, spoke on the track:
"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."
