New Holy Ghost! Video "Dumb Disco Ideas" via DFA Records—Complete with Nonsensical Kitschy Ass Lyrics


New Holy Ghost! Video "Dumb Disco Ideas" via DFA Records

NYC’s disco pop duo Holy Ghost! (Alex Frankel and Nick Millhiser) are back with their new single “Dumb Disco Ideas.” Supported by a video that is a simple time lapse of the band’s frontline with a dawn-to-dusk capture of the New York skyline and some flashing lights in between. The song is what you’ve come to expect from the Brooklyn based band: solid percussion, filling bass, fat synths, and nonsensical, way-too-kitschy vocals “I need water, we need water, share a taxi with a local native.”

“Dumb Disco Ideas” comes in at just over eight minutes, and its strength is fueled by Frankel’s and Millhiser’s deep, detailed and rich production ability. Regardless of where their true talent lies, somehow the nails-down-a-chalkboard lyrics will almost certainly be heard sing-a-long style from the indie dance crowd. It’s perfect music for when everything is going so well you just want to feel the beat and don’t really care what you are singing, like the pro-procrastination hook: “put it off, at least for another day.”
