Video: Holy Ghost - Hold My Breath
It seems like an eternity ago that we first wrote about Holy Ghost! It was the end 2007 and "Hold On" marked their first release on DFA [post-Automato]. That Track was perhaps their calling, not only an immersion into Disco, but most importantly into the Analog Synths that define their sound and their unique brand of Pop. In 2008 & 2009 they became the Remixers Du Jour, completing works for established artists like Moby & Cut Copy. Last Year it was their Break as Artists. Their trial at becoming a band and not just a production duo came pretty quickly. By the time they declared their Love for New Order in their "I will come back" Video, it was clear what was to come. Now in 2011, they have toured America once, and now going on their own as headliners. This Video for "Hold my Breath" is perhaps a good recollection of their story; The sort of tale that HBO's "How to make it in America" tries to convey to the masses and somehow misses the point. The Story of Holy Ghost! is not a coincidence...and for better or for worse, New York City stills seems to be that magical place. This Video is simply, more than just a testimony, it is in fact a reality.
