Young, wild, and free.

Posted on

This is Holychild, a Los-Angeles-based duo that makes hooky and contagious pop music that doesn't make you check your brain at the door.

They made noise last year with wry and polished early singles "Happy With Me" and "Playboy Girl," the latter of which gleefully upended feminine beauty standards.

Holychild's debut EP featuring both songs, MINDSPEAK, was released in March.

Today the band is premiering the video for new single "Running Behind," the first taste of a full-length album set to arrive in 2015, exclusively on BuzzFeed Music.

The frenetic track, which sounds like getting shot through a pinball machine, gets an appropriately playful, poolside video, directed by Nistico.

"I wanted to show more of our personalities," says Nistico of the video, which was shot in and around Holychild's manager's parents' house in the Atwater Village neighborhood of L.A. "So many of our videos are heavy with social commentary, and that's in here a little but mostly it's just me and Louie chillin' in the world. This is the first video we're releasing from our album, so I really just wanted it to be an introduction of things to come."

The duo spend a sunny day off like L.A.'s most carefree scofflaws. Snacking before swimming...

Going wild in their fanciest outfits...

And dancing in public like no one's watching.
