'Wishing You Away'
The video features 80s inspired dance moves...

HOLYCHILD have shared infectious new 80s tinged jammer 'Wishing You Away'.

The band seem to excel in fusing light with shade, a nuanced view of pop that enables them to match crisp melodies to lyrical darkness.

New single 'Wishing You Away' is case in point. On the surface a bubbly 80s tinged pop jewel, it actually refers to toxic and sometimes abusive relationships.

Singer Liz Nistico explains: "My father was physically abusive to my mom when I was growing up and I used to be ashamed of that. I was so horrified that I was a part of such a family and I didn't start talking about it until recently."

"It's a part of my past I can't escape. Sometimes I'll be dating someone who is borderline abusive and I think, "This is it. This is my destiny. This is what I'm supposed to have." And if you ever think that I want you to know you are WRONG."

"It has taken me a long time to come to terms with my past and how it dictates my present," she continues. "And I'm still working on it. But now you are going to get a glimpse of that with this song and video. The song is a cry to my dad. The video is a warning for the future. Wrapped in typical HOLYCHILD-fashion, it's cute but also creepy."
