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 when Leslie walked into the record store where Andrew was working.
They soon began crafting mythological mini-worlds into music, music videos, short films, and photo stories. Their sound blends euphoric dream-pop with twangy lo-fi garage rock to create a style that evokes Dolly Parton backed by The xx.
Their first album ‘Wax Castle’ was released to critical acclaim and put out by Wallflower Records in 2017. Their following EP, ‘The Licking River’ was mixed and produced at Machines With Magnets (Battles, Deertick) and named by a number of music blogs as one of the top indie EPs of 2017. Their latest release, ‘Otherworld’, a concept album was produced by Steve Rizzo (Belly, Kristen Hirsch) and released February 2018. Within their first year of performing live, they have traveled throughout the US on two national tours along with several live performances throughout the East Coast.
They will be based in Brooklyn this summer playing shows in the city and releasing new music and videos from their upcoming EP, recorded this past winter at Machines With Magnets and mastered by Greg Calbi of Sterling Sound (Kacey Musgraves, The War on Drugs, Tame Impala.) They will be touring in Fall 2018 alongside the EP release.
