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. Driven by the desire to create and connect through music, they soon began crafting mythological mini-worlds into home-recorded albums, music videos, short films, and photo stories. 

Holy Golden's music blends euphoric dream-pop with lo-fi garage rock to create songs that feel both vulnerable and mysterious. They've been likened to The Cranberries, Beach House, and even Dolly Parton backed by the Jesus and Mary Chain. Their creative process is a labyrinthian breadcrumb trail fueled by their deepest sorrows and brightest fantasies, which ultimately leads them towards an imaginative kingdom of sound. Their world is a place built on the foundations of love and constructed piece by piece from materials found within the subconscious.  They have released two full-length albums, several music videos, and a new EP to widespread critical acclaim. Within the first year of performing live, they have traveled throughout the US on two national tours. Their upcoming album, "Otherworld", recorded from a historic ballroom in Newport, Rhode Island, will be released January 2018.

"Holy Golden’s film, sound, and photography all make it clear that Holy Golden are far from holding back on their dreams."  ROOKIE MAG

“A sepia-toned montage of all the best parts of your teenage years, melded together into one overarching, cohesive filmic entity. Sound good? It is.”  SAVAGE THRILLS

“With a strong dream pop vibe, the track is reminiscent of contemporaries like Best Coast or Lush.” SURVIVING THE GOLDEN AGE
