HOLIDAE
In 2010, an idealistic Garrett Neal moved from Baltimore to the Twin Cities to chase his music dreams.
Neal, a beat maker and multi-instrumentalist, would meet Ashley Gold two years later. At the time, Gold was writing and performing solo, and Neal was working the door at now-shuttered Minneapolis venue Cause. Late one night, after catching experimental rock collective Dream Crusher, Neal impulsively went onstage and began fiddling with the keyboards.
“Ash got up there with me, grabbed the mic, and started improving,” he remembers. “It was 2 o’clock in the morning, and they left the sound and lights on for us and let it roll. That’s how we met. The most beautiful thing about creating these moments is that you’re a conduit for [the] music.”
From that chance encounter came Holidae, Neal and Gold’s electro-pop project. This past February, the duo won the Star Tribune’s Are You Local? best new band contest. Prizes include a trip to South by Southwest in Austin, Texas, where they played a Minnesota showcase featuring Har Mar Superstar, Night Moves, and last year’s Picked to Click champions, Bad Bad Hats. In August, Holidae scored a slot on 89.3 the Current’s “Artists to Watch” event.
Gold and Neal like to keep things local with their live show, integrating Twin Cities dancers and visual artists, plus costumes made by hometown designers. If you attended a block party this summer, odds are you saw Holidae perform.
Even though Holidae just released their debut album, April’s Tantrum, they’re already back in the studio, hoping to release their sophomore LP by next spring. The pair works flexibly. Sometimes Gold comes up with an idea, sometimes it’s Neal. From there, the creative process harks back to the night they formed — interacting, taking chances, and letting the music grow from that space. The formula is not complicated; it’s about honestly embracing newness, and never being tied to genre or convention.
The resulting tracks bloom into sleek, spacey pop gems — think Purity Ring, or even onetime local stars Lookbook. There’s substance at the core, too, as the songs carry the same weight with just piano and vocals.
Despite Holidae’s busy year, Gold continues to churn out solo R&B music, noting, “I get so much joy from it.” “We’ve had a tremendous year, and we are nothing but grateful,” Gold says. “I feel so much gratitude for the work we put in and continue to put in and grind out. Whatever happens, it just feels very good to make your art, and it affects more [people] than me.”

ZULUZULUU
Minneapolis has a long history of distinctive R&B styles and flavors. ZULUZULUU arrived in 2014 and began to expand on that with an eye on the future but with respect to the past: “I see it as the next chapter of the Minneapolis sound” says guitarist ΔRT PΔRTÉ. One of their first shows was playing a Clash tribute; months later landing on First Avenue's Best New Bands 2014. After bursting onto the scene the band took a hiatus and gathered to build collectively and contribute to the new vanguard of black music. ZULUZULUU is made up of six musicians/producers: MMYYKK, Proper T, Greg Grease, DJ Just Nine, ΔRT PΔRTÉ & Trelly Mo; armed with various synths, drum machines, and instruments set out to bring a new, exploratory modern sound influenced by the greats of funk, soul, and jazz with electronic excursions, hard grooves, Afro-futurism and soulful melodies. ZULUZULUU explores the psyche and searching for Black Excellence: “ZULUZULUU is church,
it's therapy, it's family, it’s a space where we can express ourselves freely as black men with no limitations”, states multi-instrumentalist/vocalist MMYYKK. The band works in communal fashion and continually seeks a greater a truth. The band see the groups mission as part of a bigger movement “we see ZULUZULU as a vessel, a spiritual, sonic culmination of our experiences and influences from our ancestors”.
Music for Films at the Fitz is made possible by the Arts and Culture Heritage Fund created by the Minnesota Legacy Amendment.
