In search of a ringing, sparkling, immaculately written new pop song in time for Memorial Day weekend? Tip your hat to HOLYCHILD, who’ve returned from a year-long absence (following their debut album, The Shape of Brat Pop to Come) with “Rotten Teeth.” A duet with British singer-songwriter Kate Nash, the song hinges on Liz Nistico’s slick vocals (“Do we eat or just starve ourselves tonight?” she asks on the bridge) and Louie Diller’s oh-so-smart production (those drums! the bass!).
“Rotten Teeth” is available now via Glassnote.
