Holy F**k: Salty Name, Smooth Electro-Indie Sounds

Holy Fuck isn't trying to shock you, despite the indie-electro outfit's titillating name and frequent use of random electronics in the creation of its particular blend of pulsating, intelligent dance music. These guys just want to show you a good time, and perhaps leave you with a little bit more.

Recently, Rocks Off caught up with Holy Fuck's Brian Borcherdt to discuss the mind-expanding possibilities of 35mm film editing equipment, the life of a perpetual opening band, and traditional Jewish music.

Rocks Off: What do you think makes Holy Fuck different from other indie/dance/electro-oriented outfits?

Brian Borcherdt: I don't know. We don't really pay attention to that world, particularly. We naively go about doing what we're doing without thinking too much about that genre, not really worrying about how we fit into that world, or any genre or scene.
