Holy Pinto Presents Growing Pains on New Album, “Adult”
Holy Pinto releases their second album, Adult, Friday March 8. The sound is sure to be a hit with the indie pop world. Wellness music takes you on a journey to come out of your youth and face the situations of your youth.
The album opens with “Adult # 1” welcoming listeners for an album about growing up and aging. Although short, the lyrics stand out as the opening focuses on them with the help of the acapella voice. Single, “Daisychain”, is next with a heavy guitar sound climax. The highly relevant lyrics about a lost love are sure to keep listeners on the journey to grow old.
“Goldleaf” and “Salt” are sure to be hits with the catchy chorus and dancing pop tunes. Both songs are the ones you would blow up with your windows down on a hot summer day.
“King” begins by creating anticipation that turns into a full indie vibe. Guitar chord interludes are a great addition for the sound to change throughout the song. On the same interesting note, “Brother,” begins with a guitar build and turns into a one-minute instrumental introduction adding another point to the independent scoreboard.
A rock and soft sound is presented in “You Are My Seatbelt”. With lyrics geared towards another relationship, whether it fails or succeeds, it again harkens back to the ever-popular feeling of growing up.
The album ends with “Adult # 2”, which is another ode to aging. With the slow progression towards the strong instrumental ending, the song is quite a great ending to the album capturing the real upbeat vocalist, Aymen, set up. “The best is yet to come” is the last word you hear, offering an excellent foreshadowing of the future of Holy Pinto in music.
To celebrate the album’s release, you can see Holy Pinto at the Cactus Club in Milwaukee, WI on March 9, 2019.
