HOLYCHILD is gearing up for a massive 2015. With a month-long January residency at The Echo in LA and a new album out in the months following, the recently released "Running Behind" is just the first taste of what's in store.

The song now has over 230K plays on Soundcloud, with Earmilk highlighting it as a standout track and Indie Shuffle saying it's "an exciting piece of thunderous electro-pop." Buzzfeed calls the new video for "Running Behind" "Playful" and says the song "sounds like getting shot through a pinball machine." Noisey recently highlighted singer Liz Nistico's style in a Style Rider feature, and says, "Make no mistake: What HOLYCHILD is putting out is nothing like the bubblegum pop of your youth." LA Weekly recently spoke with members Nistico and Louie Diller on the humble beginnings of the band, the motives behind their groundbreaking sound, and what to expect during their Echo residency.

Los Angeles Magazine found five reasons to check HOLYCHILD out during their stay at The Echo, noting that their music is "infectiously catchy" and "they operate on their own terms."

With the New Year comes a new show for the band, including backup singers and dancers that bring an exciting new dynamic to live sets you won't want to miss. Catch HOLYCHILD at the Echo every Monday this January.
