Friends since attending elementary school on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, Alex Frankel and Nick Millhiser were members of rap group Automato. After Automato dissolved Frankel and Millhiser began pushing toward dance music, with much success. Frankel and Millhiser co-produced the warm and melodic “Hold On” and released it on the DFA label in October 2007. "I Will Come Back," their second single, didn’t come out until 2009 but made an impact with its video -- a remake of the indelible clip for New Order's “Confusion,” a snapshot of New York’s clubbing scene (with producer Arthur Baker reprising his role). The four-track "Static on the Wire" EP followed in 2010, continuing the duo’s uncanny ability to evoke the colourful, layered sound of early- to mid-‘80s club music. In 2011, Holy Ghost! released a self-titled album that included some of their previously released songs, as well as a guest appearance from the Michael McDonald on the closing "Some Children." By that point, Holy Ghost! had also become one of the more prolific remix teams; they had re-worked tracks by MGMT, Moby, Cut Copy, Phoenix, the Juan MacLean, and Murphy's LCD Soundsystem. Their second album, "Dynamics", was released on DFA in 2013.
