Holy Ghost!

Crime Cutz EP


May 19, 2016 Web Exclusive Bookmark and Share

Crime Cutz, the latest from Holy Ghost!, is a four-track EP that strongly showcases the nu-disco side of the New York City indie dance duo. The title track fluctuates between a Giorgio Moroder synth-based ‘70s concoction and the ‘80s synth pop of Nu Shooz’s frothy smash, “I Can’t Wait,” whose durability has outlasted that of its creators. The light breezy vibes continue on “Stereotype,” which has a more serious sentiment than its sonics impart. Synthesizers, the foundation for Holy Ghost!‘s music, are played like guitars on “Compass Point,” giving it a funky slap in the process. The EP rounds off with the spare patters of the bubbly “Footsteps,” wrapping things up on a somewhat mellow note. Focused on only four songs only, Holy Ghost! has sculpted its production for a sharply defined quadruple hit. (www.holyghostnyc.net)
