On the heels of last week’s announcement and signing to G.O.O.D. Music, Chicago’s Holt (aka Hollywood Holt) drops his first release and in the process reveals a new sound and direction. Still connecting with Mano on the production, the two concoct a new cover of Kavinsky’s “Nightcall” — a cult favorite from the cult Gosling movie Drive. The original is one of my favorites too so hearing a fresh version of it from these guys is definitely welcomed.
The pace is a fair amount slower and for the video, Holt had to provide some cinematic visuals to match. The colors stand out and the story plays out in an equally slow pace so watch above and see if you vibe with it. Holt and Chelsea Lombardo direct and Emily Morse contributes on the vocals.
