London's Alex Mankoo is the man behind Holy '57, carrying on the uplifting output generated by his previous outfit Shout Timber. Listen to sun-kissed debut track 'Island Kids' below. Probably worth listening to while sipping one of those umbrella-laden cocktails.
The laidback Caribbean calypso vibe to 'Island Kids' is reflected within longtime former Broken Social Scene collaborator David Newfeld's rough-around-the-edges production. Nonetheless, 'Island Kids' is a pleasant offering from Mankoo, like a more accessible Animal Collective.
