Los Angeles-based band HOLYCHILD have been quickly carving out their own niche in the densely populated LA music scene with their unique, electrifying brat-pop sound since they released their Mindspeak EP last year. They're building on that momentum even further in 2015 when their debut album The Shape of Bratpop to Come (shout out to the Refused reference) drops via Glassnote on 1st/2nd June! The record has already seen some huge placements behind it - namely, its lead single 'Running Behind' landing a spot in the new Apple Watch ad, and it's sure to be just the tip of the iceberg for the dynamic duo.

If you've been lucky enough to catch the band live in the last few months, you'll no doubt have heard 'Money All Around' - its infectious chorus and massive drop are unmistakeable, and it just so happens to be the Brat Pop track we're premiering today! Co-produced by the band's own Louie Diller and Grammy-winning producers Greg Wells (Katy Perry, Adele) and Cian Riordan (5 Seconds of Summer, Mini Mansions), it's bound to be one of the summer's biggest hits courtesy of Liz Nistico's candy-coated, confident vocals and its thunderous, party-ready beats. On both 'Money All Around' and 'Running Behind', it's obvious that they're creating pop music with some serious attitude and sass, and you can get on board by streaming the former of those two songs below!

In just under a month, they'll be bringing their crazy fun live set (think pom poms, killer choreographed dancing, the whole shebang) across the US opening for Passion Pit at what's sure to be one of the spring's biggest parties, before coming home to play an album release gig at the legendary Troubadour in Los Angeles. Their full list of tour dates and the Brat Pop tracklisting can be found after the tune!
