Holy Golden is the multifaceted musical world of Leslie Schott and Andrew Valenti. The two met serendipitously during a lunar eclipse on the island of Martha's Vineyard.
The duo crafts mythological mini-worlds into their music, music videos, short films, and photo stories. Holy Golden's distinct sound blends euphoric dream-pop with lo-fi garage rock to create songs that feel both vulnerable and mysterious. They've been likened to The Cranberries, Beach House, and even Dolly Parton backed by the Jesus and Mary Chain. Their creative process is a labyrinthian breadcrumb trail fueled by their deepest sorrows and brightest fantasies, which ultimately leads them towards an imaginative musical kingdom.
After recording their first songs in Detroit, Michigan, they moved to Los Angeles and recorded their first album ‘Fun Sucker.' Their second album ‘Wax Castle’ was released to worldwide acclaim and then put out by Wallflower Records after their first US tour. Their EP ‘The Licking River’ mixed at ‘Machines With Magnets’ (Battles, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah) was named by a number of music blogs as one of the top indie EPs of 2017. Within their first year of performing live, they have traveled throughout the US on two national tours and played over 50 live performances. Their album, "Otherworld", recorded from a historic ballroom in Newport, Rhode Island and produced by Steve Rizzo (Belly, Kristen Hirsch) was released February 16th, 2018.
