Holy Golden is the multifaceted musical world of Leslie Schott and Andrew Valenti. The two met during a lunar eclipse on the island of Martha's Vineyard and 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, Cocteau Twins, and 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 their imaginative kingdom of sound. They have released two full-length albums, several music videos, and a new EP to widespread critical acclaim. They embark on their second US tour in October 2017. 

“Brilliant in so many ways.” DIY MAGAZINE

"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
