{tab=About Holy Ghost!}

Holy Ghost! (DFA) are born and bred New Yorkers Alex Frankel and Nick Millhiser.
The two disco and hot sauce enthusiasts met in elementary school and have been playing
in bands together ever since. Yes, they’ve managed to branch out that little.

After working as studio musicians and live players for DFA Records honchos James
Murphy, Tim Goldsworthy, and Juan Maclean, Frankel and Millhiser formed Holy
Ghost! over a shared love of analog synthesizers, Larry Levan era-disco, and good old
fashioned pop music. At the insistence of Murphy, the duo released their first original
song, “Hold On,” on DFA Records. The song’s recipe – a mix of Italo beats and pop
vocals sans irony – hit a chord worldwide and became a major cross over success. Club
support from DJ’s as different as A-Trak and David Mancuso came instantly,
and mainstream support followed suit. Itunes named “Hold On” Single of The Week and
spawned thousands of downloads daily.

Propelled by the success of “Hold On,” Holy Ghost! released a string of hit remixes for
artists like MGMT, Cut Copy, Phoenix, and Moby, and traveled across the world DJ’ing
on every continent (except Antartica). The group’s second original single, ” I Will Come
Back,” received further critical acclaim from taste makers like Pitchfork and saw heavy
rotation on MTV2 with a brilliant, New Order inspired video.

After releasing a cover swap with British band Friendly Fires on XL/DFA, the duo will
unveil their Live band and release an EP of new, original music on DFA in early 2010.
To support it, they’ll open up for LCD Soundsystem in the US and then head to Europe to
play summer festivals. Their full length debut is due out later this year.
