Day 5 of the Hand Drawn Dracula takeover welcomes a pair of true innovators.  Together as members of Holy Fuck, Brian Borcherdt and Graham Walsh are making some of the most celebrated electronic music in the country; individually, they prove themselves to be dynamic artists ion their own right.  Borcherdt records as a solo artist, contrasting Holy Fuck’s experimental work with his subdued, atmospheric acoustic material, and Walsh has quickly become to go-to guy for producing and collaborating with every one from Lights to Julie Fader, with whom Walsh recently produced a child with.
