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, an aspiring actress visiting from Los Angeles, decided on a whim to take a ferry to the island and happened upon the record store where Andrew was working.
The duo crafts mythological mini-worlds into songs, music videos, short films, and photo stories. Their sound blends euphoric dream-pop and 90’s alternative to create a style that evokes Kate Bush, The xx, and Beach House. Leslie’s candid lyrics seem straightforward at first but on further investigation, reveal layers of symbolism and stories. Andrew’s self-taught guitar playing encompasses a variety of styles but keeps the music on solid ground. Synonymous with their music is their fantastical visual world which draws inspiration from the work of Maya Deren, David Lynch, Edward Gorey, and the lonely terrain of gilded Americana.
They are not based in any one place but have lived in many places for various amounts of time; including Brooklyn, Los Angeles, Detroit, Rhode Island, and Cape Cod. This past winter, they recorded their new EP ‘Sleepwalkers in the Milky Way’ at Machines With Magnets (Battles, Deer Tick) and mastered it with Greg Calbi of Sterling Sound (Kacey Musgraves, The War On Drugs, Tame Impala.)
‘Sleepwalkers in the Milky Way’ is out now on Wallflower Records.
