BioHoly Ghost! consists of two individuals, Nicholas Millhiser and Alexander Frankel. Both grew up a few blocks from each other in New York City ... (more) and began collaborating on music at an early age. their first foray into the music world came in the shape of their first band, Automato, while attending high school. Shortly after signing to Capitol Records in 2000, they teamed up with DFA founders Tim Goldsworthy and James Murphy to handle production duties on Automato's debut. After recording with Tim and James, Alex and Nick began lending their skills to various DFA productions, including remixes and as touring and recording members of The Juan Maclean. All the while, Nick and Alex began working towards their own record. Holy Ghost! is a product of their obsessions with analog synthesizers, rare disco, and ancient production techniques. It is a co-production with DFA and a real family affair.
